Yeah, use washers.

I am rather fond of Proxie's 25mm bases

That's a great price, you might want to consider using some of the larger round bases (40mm & 60mm round plywood). Gives you the opportunity to move 5 bases rather than 20 individual bases.

I use 1" washers link with ZD1 magnets inside them link

makes transport easy. you can fit about 120 miniatures on one of these link and short of flinging the tray across the room, they stay on

I've even had a tray slide off the back seat of my saturn when i hard-braked (idiot driver cut me off) and all my PLASTIC figs stayed on (a few metals popped off, but no damage)

Wargames Factory ? If so, I cut out 3/4 inch disks from really thin plastic sheet and glue them to fender washers. The plastic figures are glued to this disk with plastic weld. It makes an very strong bond.

I use mdf round cut bases. If I recall the Zombie Vixens do come with bases.

Use washers, the extra weight helps the plastic figures stay standing.

Washers. I use either 3/4 or 1" depending on the size of the model. My local Ace has them at 100/$4.99. Frankly, at that price I buy 10 boxes at a time. They work perfectly to weight the fig and make magnetic transport and movement trays a snap. There are cheaper options (pennies) but they are not as convenient.

Sweet thanks very helpful, if i wanted to think about using magnets on them what size would i use? Completely new and have thought about it but not sure its a good place to start for a first project
