I live in the city of Gulf, on the shores of Lake Water. This fun fact has nothing to do with this badge you're pointing at.

What do you do to the bottom of the bases?

Follow up question:

Do you have messy bottoms?

(do not take that out of context!)

No, I don't paint the rims, just the top of the base.

I just paint them black (or whatever color the base is) easy to do, and makes my ocd about such things better...

I painted the bottom of mine black and put white dots on them.
Ex. for stormtroopers, I put one dot on one, two dots on another, three on the last. So for gameplay I put the 123 number tokens corresponding to the base color (red, blue, purple, black) in a row underneath the deployment card and put the damage tokens underneath whichever number gets wounded

I put weighted tiles or washers on the bottom to add heft

Nothing much. As you see mine is somewhat scruffy looking after painting the rim black. Obviously no-one is going to see it, until it topples over or something and reveals "the mess" on an otherwise neatly painted miniature.

It's a Comedic Underwear Exposure moment.

And it's an ocd thing. At least andy scott understands me. cool

I'm thinking of either cleaning it up with rubbing alcohol, or paint the whole thing black...

Paint'em bloody. When killed players tend to knock them over, revealing the bloody mess they've made.

Ah, I see.

Well, maybe you should write something like 'you're not supposed to look here' underneath?

Personally, I like the idea with the numbers, I might do that as well...

Simple solution: I simply run a large black Sharpie around the raised lip on the base (which is where the paint gets) and it tidies it up nicely.

I leave the bases as they are, no matter if they're messy. If I started painting the underside of the bases the next thing I'd be doing is sleeving all my cards and that's a path I don't want to go down whistle
