Nope, don't see a need to and it would make storage a pain.

I've glued mine, and it works fine for me.

As I usually don't transport the game, I store mine on a shelf next to my Star wars minis, so that isn't an issue for me, this way it speeds up the setup time a little.

Yes, super-glued them on there for the very reason you mention.

I did not, but will certainly do so.

The Minis fall off the bases too often and it is annoying, that if you want to move the miniature, you will have to balance it right in order to not loose either the figure or the base. Since I have stored everything inside an organizer and only the miniatures and game boards have remained in the game box it will work fine.

Yep, I certainly did. It was annoying to have the small guys fall out of the base all the time.

Additionally, I removed the Shoggoth's legs, so I needed to glue them to their bases. Turns out that those two plastics bond extremely well with superglue gel.

I haven't yet.I'm still considering just replacing the bases as they are really clunky.In any case I want to paint them first.

No. I use zombies for corpse markers (or witches and maniacs if need be). They're great because when you lay them down, they look like they're breakdancing.

Yes, I glue mine. I hate it when they fall off their bases, some of them are nice and snug but others are a pain so I decided to just glue them all.

I just use the tokens. Most of the miniatures stay in the box. But since I've painted the BIG monsters, when it's time for them to appear, the token stays in my Keeper play area and I *PLONK* the monster on the board!

I've glued mine, they wouldn't stay in their bases propperly otherwise. Some of my peices are a little 'tispy' looking. goo

On the other hand (and not that it matters much) i wish id glued them before putting the base cards in... now theyre stuck. probably not a big problem unless FFG randomly publish alternate powers for the monester figures, which could happen i suppose!
