Confession time, gentlemen. You're putting your new castings on their permanent multiple-casting bases. As you do so, you see that despite all your previous checks, you mispainted that or not painted this. Do you
a. Stop the whole process, even with the glue drying, find the necessary paint or paints and make the correction?
b. Place the casting where the fault is easiest to reach and fix later--but so more conspicuous now?
c. Bury him deep in the formation and hope no one notices?
d. Have I missed anything?

For me, I don't notice until maybe a few months after basing. I then try to fix if it is easy to reach.

Unless it is something totally noticeable, I would choose C. Otherwise, A.

Stick the bad ones in the middle. Use lots of flock.

C for me. When I get to the basing stage I just stop looking.

D and B; my 28mm figures are individually based.
