I have a question about bases. I have a whole bunch of finished Eldar and Blood Angels and I would like to go back and weigh down their bases. Some are round bases with slottas, some are are just plain round bases with no slid or slotta in them at all.
Several years ago I bought a few death company models on eBay. The guy who assembled these did a great job at filling the bases up. When you turn the models upside down and look at the base it just looks like one piece, no trace of the base having been filled up. He or she did not magnetize the bases though.
I would like to fill up my bases in a similar way but magnetize them as well.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to do this?
Here are a few pictures of the death company models and some of my own models. As you can see, some of these are very old. What can I best use to add magnets into these bases and then fill them up so it's a flat clean surface on the bottom? Ideally, this will also weigh down my models so they don't tip over on the table top...
Well, some of the things I've seen used for weighing down bases include air rifle pellets, pennies, washers, and fishing weights. (To make pennies and washers fit in slotta bases, you'll have to do some snipping.) Basically, find one of those things that comes in a magnetic metal if you want to attach to a magnetic board. (or you could use a rare earth magnet if you want the base magnetic, not the other way around.) Glue it in with some superglue or hot glue. To finish up and make a smooth base, I would get some 2 part epoxy. You can find some at your local hardware store. Mix it up, apply to the base, and use a flat edge to scrape it smooth with the bottom edge of the plastic base. Bingo.
Ok thanks. I'll try some earth magnets and filling it up with 2 part epoxy. I think I still have some lying around.
