I've got thin wood round bases I tried to use super glue to base them with some sand and the base absorbed the glue any ideas what I can do about this ?

Thanks

Use wood glue instead(PVA).

Note that any sort of PVA or the like will shrink as it cures, which can result in warping of absorbent materials like wood or card. You can ameliorate this effect by priming the bases first with a spirit-based primer — cheap spray primer works well. It pays to prime both sides, as wood or card will also absorb moisture from the atmosphere, which can also cause warping, so make sure they're thoroughly sealed.

Also be careful of the amount you apply - I managed to warp some mdf 20x40 bases using too much PVA.

Also if you're using the cheap super glue it's usually runny. The runny superglue is best for hard Smooth surfaces. For porus surfaces like mdf, fabric, balsawood you want one of the gels or the 'mid range' which you can get from acorn models.

@ Gus yea man I think this game will take off eventually, still early stages and the round bases, I feel dirty saying it but look better :lol:

@scheminggeneral thanks man I have some of that glue and it is working. I put paint down first then pva and superglued with the gel like stuff on top of it if that makes any sense :lol:
