I just bought swooping hawks and to be completely honest, they need to be on flying bases, so i decided to save myself a lot of hassel of trying to pin them, which is annoying.
I have made my own flying bases, all you need is some termie bases lets say 5, for five swooping hawks, 5 normal bases and some of the plastic sprue's let always seem to pile up.
Cut the exces plastic off the normal bases so you just have aslot for the model.
Cut the sprue's into colum shapes and glue them upright to the Termie bases and them glur the model slot to the sprue. Now you have a nice flying base that should only take about 2 minutes to make, or the same amount of time to get that stupid pin vice working.
Let me know what you think..

That sounds like a good idea for flying bases but maybe to add a little more flavour to the base in stead of cut up pieces of sprue you could use pieces of ruined building and other stuff that looks the same. But yes that would look quite good on the battle feild.

I'm doing something similar but I took the small flying bases and drilled holes into the bodies of the Swooping Hawks.
"They say the Darkness consumes you. They don't say what happens after It's done."
Personally, I'm fond of brass rod.
Paint it black & it's barely noticable.
I drill a hole in an appropriate place on my model & one on the base (or a bit that's on the base). Attach the 2 with a short section of wire & you're set.
You can get a LOT of great positions like this.
