    Yes, I've seen people use painted wooden dowels as bases, or steel ones. Pretty much anything will work, but none of the ones I've seen have quite the visual effects as the ones in the box (which give the impression of actually flying). But if you don't care about that, you can just grab some wooden dowels, as mention, and glue those on.

    i was picturing them just clipping buildings as if they were knocking rubble off so you wouldnt see much of the base, and putting a washer on the rod so the raider balances and doesn't need to be glued

    forge world do some flying basses (scroll down about 4 items). I haven't seen them in the flesh but they look a lot larger than the standard GW ones, and I'm sure you could work a building into them somehow as they look quite tall

    If you have some spare cities of death terrain pieces you could glue a couple of walls together and have a wooden dowel running up the inside of the join to sit the raider on.
