Another random question - here seemed better than anywhere
Does anyone make their own - or is their available - special weights to put in the basses of plastic models?
I did have a big ol' pile of lead I considered figuring out how to cast - might be a little dodgy however
The most common method is to use coins.
Lead would be a good idea, if you can make it into a coin shape (like an English 1p) that weighs models down pretty well.
Its not really worth spending money to be honest to do it, just glue random objects to the base (bits of sprue, old hearing aid batterys etc).
Why didn't I think of coins . . . . ..
Thx *V* much
I use US nickels.

Metal washers work well too.
You can even cut them (with the right tools) for slotta bases.
I use the remenant from my metal models. You know the big pieces that are always hanging off of the metal guys. You may not have enough of that though. I would use washer since they aren't money, for some reason that bothers me.

Either use Coins, or do what I do:
If they're small plastic models (Hormagaunts, for example) just put the thingies you get from the metal models - you sometimes get those crazy traingle-shaped things coming off them? use them - they're heavy enough and less subtle.
you could always go out and get some cheap putty (not greenstuff) and completely fill in the underside of the bases. It might not work for the extremely overbalanced models, but it would add some weight

Lead fishing weights are the best i have found. Take two small ones and flatten em w/ a hammer and glue them on. It is heavier than a coin and it is less money :w00t:
I doubt glueing a penny on a model will break the bank.
