    Seraphim on flying slottabases

    I dislike the seraphim bases - metal extensions of their legs designed to illustrate the fact that they are jump infantry. I think it looks very artificial and is not terribly imaginiative, and even a little ugly.
    My intention is to mount the seraphim on flying bases. Could this lead to a misinterpretation of their abilities? Would it look rubbish? Anyone else done it?

    And what are the flying slottabase ball and socket for?

    i think that that would be pretty cool, the meta lpoles going into their feet kinda tak away the illusion. the ball and socket comes with the land speeders, they might come with other lager flying models to not sure.

    i had the same prob with the old style chaos raptors. i removed the slotta base drilled a hole in there foot or bum and put them on small flying bases (the ones used for gargoyles)
    you used to be able to buy them, i dont know if u still can. they look good but, they have balance issues, they do tend to fall over on my rough sand table!

    Yeah drilling does work best, it'S simple and fast to take apart after the battle. AMke sure you don't drill too big or deep, the model will slip and slide.

    I do the exact same thing with my assault marines. I use my pin vise with the large bit to drill a hole in their crotch (though I am not precisely sure where a good center of gravity would be for a Seraphim), and then drill a hole in a normal base, and insert a flying pole in between. That way, I'm sure that the bases are correct for tournament play, and the basing can match the rest of my army.

    Oh very good idea - flying pole between a normal base and the model. I might go with that.
