Looks like I don't know my own strength. I went to remove a figure who'd been blu-tacked onto a bottle cap for a while and lo and behold he snapped right off of his base leaving his foot behind!
Luckily my lord and master, Kevin Dallimore covers drilling and pinning in one his books so I was well up to the task of repairing him. My wife has more hobbies than I do, and one of them is jewelry making. Luckily she had a tiny push drill and some wire for me to use. After I had super glued the pin in place and allowed it to dry I pasted over the gap with some GW liquid green stuff. Which is not so liquid-y, by the way (unless I've gotten an old bottle).
Sadly I did not snap pics of the whole process, but I'm sure its documented out there somewhere. Here are some after pics of the levy ready to be sanded.
Also, a quick reminder that James' blogger's conference is coming up soon. Details below by clicking the image below:
