plastic base and 2p coin.
The 1p coins made the figures ridiculously light and tippy IMO and this reinforced my view that 2p coins were the right way to go for single 28mm figures. The WG plastic bases neatly fit within the tiny rim of the 2p, so both sets of figures were easy to position on their additional bases. (When existing bases and coins are exactly the same diameter, it requires more effort to ensure they stick flush.)

already on MDF bases and have simply had some steel
Note that the original owner of the American figures did not use filler before adding flock which left the rim of the figure base showing.
The base tops will be given a new finish at a later date approximating to the finish already used on the gun base. The British bases are nicely finished but I will need to resurface them because of the added 2p coins.
