Here's a cat I made to go with the Eldar. It started off as a metal leopard from the game Bushido that I bought ages ago. I enlarged the ears with green stuff, but otherwise it's unconverted. I was under the impression that Grynx - psychic cat-things from 40k that seem especially connected to the Eldar - were blue. Apparently, they aren't, but what the heck. It was a very quick paint job, and while the highlighting could be more extreme, I'm happy with it (and glad I finally found a use for that model).
So, I have a question. I've got some old metal Howling Banshees and Swooping Hawks. Being ancient models, they've got metal tabs across the bottom of their feet. They're all meant to be very athletic, which means that the points of contact with the ground are very small (basically, they're on tiptoe).
If I use my standard bases, so they're in keeping with the rest of the army, I'll have to cut the tabs off, which will make them very hard to connect to the bases. However, if I use slottabases (as was intended for these models) I'll probably have to use flock on the bases, which will be different to the rest of the army.
Which option should I go for?
