I mean why is this so god d**n difficult. I got my sternguard awhile ago and I finally assembled them after many days of putting it off. I go to put them in the bases and first off, the piece that goes in the slot part is too long. So I clip part of it off and try again, the length is fin but the writing is in the way. So I push the figure and it breaks the arm off. Does anybody have any insight on this?
File the words down?

Fenrir: and magic.

Make the slot in the base bigger?
Alright but is this what happens to all metal figures? Because if so this is a ridicoulos hassle that shouldnt be neccesary.
Cut the thing off his shoes entirely and glue it right to the base, then fill in the slot with GS or tape over it. Slotta-bases are unnecessarily annoying, imo.
Never force anything.
Those bars on the feet are really for the moulding process and not the gaming. Buy a nice pair of clippers, a good knife and some files/sandpaper, then you should be abe to tackle most things.

I have a nice pair of clippers, a knife, and I have a heavy duty file. But why do they do this? If it doesn't help then why do they do it?
Slotta(tm) bases were developed for this very reason.
The tabs ARE meant to fit in the slots.
They've done so for decades being, if anything, slightly loose-fitting.
They don't fit nowadays because of poor quality control.
Afaik, slots are the same size they've always been.
Occam's Razor, and all that.
It doesn't take THAT much effort to file it down to fit the slot. Normally. Some of them can be a bit fat though.
