Another solution to a problem that doesn't exist.

Imagine trying to paint a unit using this thing…

I temporarily attach figures to nails. I'm so outdated.

"I temporarily attach figures to nails. I'm so outdated"

Same here.

I do the same for my 25/28mm foot figures. For horses I use soda bottle caps. I'm not necessarily "old school" (although I am old), but frugal (a better word than cheap grin ).

I save the lid/cork from my whisky bottles.

Still, I can see the appeal for people who mostly game Warmachine and the like, where the goal is 6-10 unique figs, painted to show stopper standard.

I'm a Luddite: wood glue and a nail at most

Bah. Popsicle sticks.

Scotch double-sided 'Poster Tape' and cut-up cardboard 'counter trees' from boardgames. Advantage is, should you get too much water in your brush's hairs, you can touch side of brush to 'rough' edge of cardboard, soak water up.

The problem with that is it doesn't look like it will stand by itself when you put it aside to dry. I have a dozen 3" long inch square blocks of wood with blu-tac on them, can do a unit at a time and they stand happily while they wait their next colour.

I handle them by the base (or the head) until they are done. Mounting them on something just makes them awkward to handle. YMMV… ;-)

I use the lids to prescription bottles and poster putty.

I too use variants of the systems already described.

But I had a look at the video. The device can stand upright on a table. Also the orange pedestal part is held on by magnet and the idea is you have a bunch of these with your figures mounted on them and put them on the ring holder as needed. There are several pedestal designs for holding the painting subjects in different ways.
