I started rebasing what's painted of my army because I got sick of the ugly as sin green flock I had on their bases.

So I checked around, ordered a few supplies and experimented around a bit, and found what I think is a quick and dirty way of doing good looking bases. I don't know if this is new or if I've rediscovered America but here's a tutorial anyway. I made it for people who want to make good looking bases real quick. The two bases I made while typing up the tutorial took me about half an hour. You could probably rebase a whole army overnight with no effort.

So anyway, here you go: http://tahrikmili.bl...g-tutorial.html

Do you pin the feet to secure the model to its base effectively, or does some glue work through the basing there?

I scraped off the old glue from the mini's feet, then applied cyanoacrylate superglue to the feet, firmly pressed onto the base and it worked right through the scatter. Pinning would definitely make things stick better but it doesn't seem necessery.
