Theoretically I could have mounted the figures on Slotta bases and then on coins, but the smallest Slotta bases I could find were too big. They came almost to tbe edge of the 2p coins and would have made the bases look too thick.
And so, I tried three other methods of attaching the figures to coins. In all cases I first used Games Workship sprue clippers to make a 50% reduction in the depth of the figure's tab and then filed the bottom of the tab flat.
(1) Lump of Greenstuff
|Greenstuff alone: the figure kept keeling over.|
|Matchsticks: strong but time-consuming|
(3) Superglue alone, then Greenstuff
|First stage: Superglue and faith alone.|
|Second stage: Reinforcement with Greenstuff and all is well.|
I also had a few Orcs on Slotta bases. These were quite big figures and had very wide stances with their toes coming almost to the edge of the coins. For these I had to remove the tabs altogether and just superglued the bottoms of their feet directly to the coins. These are not going to be as robust and only time will tell if the bonds are adequate.
