They fit so so... height is ok but look at the hands, they are a lot smaller (about 1/4 of the HQ minis).
This happens with almost all the figures that are not made by Citadel.

Did anyone ever try to cut out a slot in the Zealot bases? I tried to get to work with an exacto knife but failed miserably... :lol: wrong tool? I dont have a dremel and didnt find the slotta bases online.

If the cut out doesnt work I gotta remove the metal slots from the minis with pliers or somehing. :roll:

I guess a dremel is the only tool that works fine for this purpose.

Another common way to base them:

    Cut the tab off using clippers
    File the feet a little bit
    Using a pin vice, drill a small hole in the underside of each foot.
    Glue the end of a paper clip in each hole and cut to length. That way you have a 0.5 - 1mm metal rod protruding from each foot.
    Put a dab of paint on the bottom of each rod
    Make contact with the base, leaving an imprint of where each rod will go
    Make a hole in the base for the rod using the pin vice
    Glue the model onto the base
    If a bit of a rod is protruding from the bottom, cut it flush with the base using clippers

This would be really hard. You’d probably need to drill a series of holes along where you want the slot to be then use a small rasp to file the slot to shape
