First things first...

Ensure the work surface is protected, and there is adequate ventilation

Using a sharp craft knife or similar, score and cut one of the bases in half, and from another a strip, about 1/3 of it's width. Take care when using the knife.

Using a small amount of superglue, affix the bases as shown below.

After the carriages are individually assembled and painted...


Place the horses such that they fit onto the front base, when happy with their position apply a small amount of adhesive to each of the figures and affix.

Adding the Limber to the horse team

Position the limber carriage such that it is aligned and very close to the horse team, then place the gun carriage behind this, a spot of adhesive applied to secure them will be required.

Basing your painted models
