POLL DESCRIPTION

Winston Smith Supporting Member of TMP explains:

Old Glory has a lot of figures in energetic poses but with skimpy or badly balanced bases. They won't stand up as nude lead figures, let alone while the epoxy sets on their bases.

So I like to draft "corporals". These are figures with fixed bayonets. I smear the base of the figure with epoxy and place him on his washer. Then the corporal comes in and places his bayonet on the figures chest. This keeps him from falling forward while the epoxy sets.

What do you use?
