I've always liked themed armies which step away from the "standard" look and yours is no exception. I like the mix of minis ( I might "borrow" the Cold One Cavalry......)
With regard to the steam tank, I have worked on quite a few Mageknight minis and they can be a little difficult to work with, especially if they are very rubbery. Abecedar's suggestion is what I would do or "pin" using plastic or metal rods.
I would be very careful if you intend to apply any paint or varnish to the tank. The rubber/plastic can react with certain paints/varnishes and become sticky ( I have found this out to my cost).


I don't want to achieve immortality through my work. I want to achieve it through not dying.

@Carcearion: The "bull centaurs" are the lizard riders from the top of the page. They´ll be in my next group shot.

@Abecedar and Pappa Midnight: The base is solid resin. If I use your idea I´ll drill holes for the screws. Otherwise I fear the base will break. It was fastened with 4 transparent pins on the original base (you can see one on the photo). Maybe I use them for pinns or screws ...

I´m glad that you like my little project and looking forward to my next game with my throng Takes Hat off

You mean your going to cover that great freehand work!? Shock

As great as it looks I suppose I assumed you'de be attaching then right to the base, like it was the floor of an evil temple, I think I must have been in a KoW multi-basing mindset. Freehand runes and symbols is a huge hole in my painting skill set, and I'm always so impressed by what people can do.
