Just got an order of 15mm FreiKorps French line cavalry. Really nice, they are casting separate horse and riders now!!! To the point, since they are now separate pieces it makes the rider a little tricky to handle while painting. I was contemplating drilling a small hole in their…uh…bottom and inserting a tooth pick or short piece of wire(hence the title of this post). Any better ideas?

Hold them in your hands. I never have problems with paint rubbing off.

I painted some FreiKorps Sikh lancers recently by jamming their boots into the jaws of some wooden pegs, painting the upper parts, then just finishing by painting the lower legs.

I drill a small hole and insert a toothpick with a wee bit of white glue to handle 15mm cavalry riders and nail for 28mm riders. Works well IMHO. That hole is also good for epoxy when I epoxy the rider to the mount.

+1 mckrok, then insert them into an empty margarine tub lid that's on the tub for stability, instant holder.
