The problem with the slot, is the width. And with these detail base, I will have be more careful where to put the slot or the detail not to destroy everything.
If you check my mini in SDE, I do not hide the slot, because it does not destroy a beautiful base.
And to sculpt with green stuff, I have try a few time... with my try with my Warmachine/Horde miniature, this is not for me.
The underneath of skirt is painted
. Even If we do not see it easily, I have painted every spot on the mini.
Here two other Oni.
