I use rubber cement. Holds 'em in place, but they're easy to pull up and move if you want to relocate them.Yeah... No bases needed !! A gummy type adhesive is good if you do want to manipulate them at times.. Or, even white glue their shoes, butts down.. Glue dries clear and can be melted later with water....
I like the plastic idea. My son likes to move them around and play with them.If you absolutely have to have bases you could use little pieces of clear plastic like LifeLike used to do.
Dime sized is way too big. Punch some little circles out of any clear packaging with a paper hole punch and use pva or windshield glue to attach the figure.
I agree though that gluing or pinning is a better option.
If you're repositioning them for filming I'd definitely go for something clear and small. Though I might matte varnish the clear basses. Would no longer be completely transparent but it'd be small, neutral and non reflectiveThe reason for the bases is because the figures will not be stationary in one location, I will be making videos and they will some will be used in different areas as needed such as following a train work crew / MOW etc.. and this will be made into videos.....I will look into the small fender washer, great idea..thanks
We do a similar thing with our Christmas O layout. I bought a bunch of the cheap figures painted them with paint markers and based them on plain white flat poker chips like these.I like the plastic idea. My son likes to move them around and play with them.

The fender washers were already mentioned back in post #10, but thanks for the input.....with your reply of why you need portability, most of the answers here do not work well, although they would on a 'normal' static layout ...
what you can try is something fairly heavy, like a fender washer, to use as an easily moveable base plate
So the tenors are a little more discrete?I really think fender washers are going to be too thick and large to make good basses for 1/87 scale figures. Plus they've got a hole in the middle.
I've seen washers used for war game miniatures but they are larger and obvious basses are the norm.
