Also, 023 how do you get those figs to stand up on a Citadel base?
Glue. They are standing on a thin flat disk. Sometimes referred to as an "integral base", rather than the GW style "slotted base". It gets covered up by the sand & flock when you finish the base off. You can see it a little bit on the Mirliton handgunner -- the base on that one is a bit thicker. If I had done a better job, I could have sloped some putty or more sand up around it to disguise it more. Even some of the older GW figures used to be done like that. (Often referred to as "pre-slotta GW.")
023 I really like the look of some of those figs but most of them are converted to Euros or English Pounds. Is that why you recomend using Warstone or Cavalier?
Just for Foundry figures. Northstar (the distributor for the Artizan figures) will convert directly at the current rate from UK Pounds to US Dollars, Canadian Dollars, Euros, or whatever. So they give a fair deal.
Foundry, on the other hand, convert the currency based on some fantasy conversion rate that is almost always much worse for the buyer. For example, the UK to US conversion has been floating around anywhere from 1:1.40 to 1:1.60 for a while now. But Foundy charges something like 1:2. Same with Euros.
So, for example, many of their packs are priced at £11.00. If I convert £11.00 at the recent rate to US currency, that's about $16.50. But Foundry will charge me $23.00 if I buy from them. That is a HUGE difference if you're ordering a bunch of figures. For that reason, I refuse to buy from Foundry.
If I order from a UK merchant selling Foundry figures, who trades at current rates (like Caliver) I will only be charge the $16.50. So the only Foundry figures I've bought in years (since they dropped their US distributor) have been through them or off eBay.
