Any advice on assembling the figures to the stands?

Hey all. 
It seems odd.

I go to attach the figures to their bases....
but the holes drilled for them appear to be larger on one side than the other (albeit slightly).

They don't seem to stay or fit in the drilled holes well.. and on the side they do.... the name of the base is upside down.

Are we expected to glue them in ?

any advice is appreciated.

Thanks,
runatyr

Not sure the answer, but I did want to say, "Welcome to the forums!"

We always glue our figures in the bases when we use them for tournaments. I find that gel-style superglue works very well.

Yeah, I've glued mine. The only reason you might not want to (that I can think of) is if you haven't painted them but plan to. 

But use the glue sparingly! It doesn't take much, and it's really easy to mark up the clear bases if we use too much...

Zap-a-Gap! You'll find this in any hobby or game store. It's 100% the best glue for anything involving miniatures ever.
