Using the Plastic Rubble Bases
Designed with the battles of Monte Cassino in mind. They are perfect for representing the ruined town of Cassino itself or any number of other war-torn towns, villages, or urban centres. Below are several tips and tricks about how to use these exciting new bases with your figures.
Step One
The simplest way to attach figures to the base is to fill the
cavity roughly halfway with superglue.

Step Two
When you place a figure into the cavity, the excess glue will squeeze out around the edge.
Step One Step Two
Step Three
Sprinkle sand or basing grit onto the glue, to fill the gap and hide the edge of the figure’s moulded-on base.

Step Four

Step Three Step Four
See how easy it is with these new plastic bases? And this is only the begining of what we have in store for plastic bases.
