Sometime ago, my great buddy SC John walked in with a shopping bag full of old orcs and said, "Here, have fun with these". There were some Marauder wolfriders in it and a bunch of 1st edition Ruglud's armored orcs. Recently I got inspired to build that group and put them in some sort of diorama, the Warhammer equivalent of a soccer team photo.
I decided to put the 4 characters together with ten troopers so the whole unit would have 14 models. I noticed right away that they truly don't line up, Their feet stick out of the base when you use an old straight slotta base but if you use the the diagonally slitted one, the models don't look good, looking sideways. So I had to make the base big enough to create some space in between each mini.
I wanted a height difference between the front and back row, so I created a second, raised row and added some stones. With plastic card I created slots for the bases, because in the end I wanted the bases to sink in a bit.
