Basing the Coryphée
With a 30 soulstone game of Malifaux on the horizon I decided to dig out the Showgirls starter set as a change from Ramos but realised that I haven’t built my Coryphée yet.
These stunning miniatures come as a pair in a blister and their rules allow them to merge into a duet causing both models to be on a 50mm base rather than each on a 40mm one.
Two options presented themselves to me:
- Buy a second blister
- Work out a clever basing method to save funds.
I don’t have cash to throw around so option 2 seemed the obvious choice.
To that end my first job was to raid the local coffee house – pick your brand of choice – and grab a handful of their delightful wooden stirrers. Once home I laid out enough of them to allow a lipped 40mm base to fit on the top.
Now, it is worth noting that a 40mm base fits into a 50mm base and a 30mm fits into the 40mm one, for a 30mm base I use a pound coin as a template but substitute with whatever fits.
I am now left with this
Now just cut them out and file/sand to fit
Lastly, I drilled a small hole into each 40mm base and two in the 50mm on before attaching a 0.50mm pin to the underside of each Coryphée so that I could switch between the bases in order for the Dance Together action to be performed.
Now I just need to try and get around to painting something.
