Step two is applying epoxy to the base so that Thrud actually sticks to it!
Third, we coat the still wet epoxy with basing material. In this case I'm going for a desert look, and to the I'm using tiny gravel to bury Thrud. No doubt, he'll face far worse dangers in his adventures in the future.

Finally, after the glue has set, we brush away the excess gravel and are left with Thrud happily installed on his new base!

Next we shall focus on priming and adding the first coats of paint.
