I used the same tools, material and process to clean, assemble and base the Yu Jing models. Everything went together really well with a minimal amount of filling needed.

Basing tip

No doubt many of you do this or have a better approach but I thought it would be worth sharing.

When basing metal miniatures, I like to cut the block of metal that runs across the bottom of the base, just so it leaves some below the parts that will touch the base.

The one problem with this is that you can end up unintentionally pushing the legs apart while using clippers. A way around this, is to file through the centre to provide some relief. Images speak loader than words so I’ve also added a few pics of the steps.

  1. File through the metal bar
  2. Clip off either side with a slight tapper, this will give a robust fit to the base. I recommend doing it as tight as possible to reduce the impact when cutting out the base
  3. Offer the model to the base aligning the remaining metal with the grove below the base and mark it. Carefully cut through the base and then glue the miniature in place
