Tomorrow's War meets Battletech: Clan Wolf Beta Galaxy "Elemental" point

Clan Wolf, Beta Galaxy Elemental Point.

My first clanner unit are a Point (5 troopers) of elite infantry in Elemental battle armor. Repainted and re-based Elementals from Mechwarrior Clix.

Elementals are the armored infantry troopers of the Clans. Elementals are genetically bred to be the largest and strongest of the three common Clan warrior phenotypes. They wear battle armor that gives them tremendous strength, protection, and mobility. The armor also allows groups of Elementals to damage, or even destroy, 'Mechs. Elementals are some of the best soldiers in existence. They follow difficult training, which differs from one Clan to another. Only a few members of each sibko "test out" to become true Elementals
A size comparison with regular infantry of the Inner Sphere (Kurita trooper):

The Point Commander (with Clan Wolf decal to identify him during gameplay)

Elementals carry a SRM-2 rack on their back, jump jets and a main weapon system. The latter mostly consists of either a (light) Laser or a (heavy) machine gun, depending on mission.

The other arm has a manipulative BattleClaw that is strong enough to tear armor plates off any vehicle, even a Mech. Mounted on the same arm are small arms, mostly a SMG or an assault rifle.

I did this with a base of them I found lying around college a few years ago, and now all my BA are mounted like this. The Dark Age Elementals are just so damn cute.

How did you build up the base, to give the domed look?

I left a part of the original base (stand) that the Elemental was mounted on underneath the sand. The Elemental was glued down to the surface of the coin and Green Stuff utilized to fill the gaps, so it appears to be standing on a "domed" based (or a little hill) :-)

If this doesn't make much sense to you, let me know and I'll post a tutorial on how to individually base Mechwarrior Dark Age infantry.
