Default Am I the only one...

Am I the only one that breaks the peg on the flying bases every time I use the frickin things? It seems to me that the vehicles need more support than one tiny peg unless you just want to put them on a shelf as a display piece. Has anyone come up with a way to reinforce them so that they don't break so much?

Nope. Mine break a lot too. A bag of flying bases is pretty cheap though, so I just try to be careful and replace when I break one anyway.

I dont know what it is you use the pegs for, but when I use them for my eldar grav tanks, I simply drill the hole bigger, and puts it further down the peg than the little 1˝mm pegthing thats supposed to do the trick. A bigger hole simply does the trick.

I dont use pegs on my jet bikes.... :shifty:

Simple. Don't glue them in, and be careful with them.

If we talk Hammerhead/falcon, you may need to do some drilling or plugging to make it a better fit, and then as long as you handle it carefully, you shouldn't have any problems.

Oh - and always use the smallest ones, its more stable, and looks better IMO.

That's a pretty good idea Esque. Oh, and I use them for Hammerheads, Devilfish, Piranha, and Drones. Mostly, I break the big bases but every now and then a drone will eat it's post as well.

@ Vimes. That's my current system. Could it all be some insidious plot for GW to empty our bank accounts 1 peg at a time?!?! ;D

I doubt it given how successful they are at doing it in much larger chunks with all their other products.
