How to install Base Bits

Installing Base Bits is an incredibly simple process. To ensure a smooth install, take a look at the step by step instructions provided below.

Step 1

Assemble the required parts on a flat work surface.

You will need:

  • The original Games Workshop base(s)

  • Your Base Bit(s).

  • Super glue (gel preferred).

You can mount your Base Bits to the Games Workshop base with or without the model already attached.

We recommend mounting the Base Bit after model assembly.

Step 2.

Place the Base Bit on your work surface with the magnet facing down.

Optional: Add a couple of drops of superglue to the edge where the plastic and metal meet to fix the magnet in place. Allow this to dry for 10 minutes before continuing.

Step 3.

Apply five small beads of super glue around the circumference of the Base Bit, you will not need a lot.

Then immediately place your Games Workshop base over the top, pressing down firmly to spread the glue.

Step 4.

Lift the model to look underneath, check for any oozing superglue. If some glue has oozed, wipe carefully with a isopropyl alcohol on a paper towel.

Place the model back into the previous position and leave to dry.

Most gel superglues will be solid in 10 minutes, and fully cured in 24 hours.
