Some mage knight figures rebased. 2 Years, 2 Months ago  
Awhile ago I saw



from bensrpgpile (good stuff if you haven’t watched it or read his blog you should). So I went on ebay and picked up over 100 mage knight miniatures for around $40 (shipping was free). A friend of mine who used to play Mage Knight also gave me about 50 or so figures from the mage knight line. Some of them truly look bad and I didn’t bother with those. However, some of them are pretty sweet. So following in the footsteps of Ben I rebased a bunch. I bought some cheap bases from ken_of_york and started basing. Here are a few. The last shows them next to some pathfinder miniatures for comparison.

These are great! I have been rebasing MK figures for a while now. Some of the paint jobs are down right terrible but you can find some pretty great ones too. Plus, the sculpts are unusual and keep players guessing. Put one of these on the table when you have a group of metagamey (or in my case, other DMs)Players that know the stats for just about every monster.

The one thing I dislike about them is cutting them off the old bases. I use a hot knife and sometimes the fumes are terrible. How do you do it?

I have a whole box full of them that rebased without flock. I flock them as I need them.

The glue that connected the feet to the bases was so old and dry that I was able to just snap them right off. For a couple I used an Xacto knife. For 3-4 stubborn ones I heated the Xacto knife on the stove for a second.

WOW, so by chance I have only one Mageknight mini and gave it a try, it really worked. Looks like I have some shopping and work to do!

I re-base mine with metal washers. I scuff them up with sandpaper and hit them with low sheen black primer. Cheap and easy.
