That's very cool. Nice work. To make it a little safer, you could drop a magnet into the center of the plinth and glue one to the base of your mini and it would hold that puppy on there tight.

That mini looks amazing, btw!

Oooh, magnets would have been a great idea. I'm going to use a bit of blue tac (poster putty) to get thru this weekend.

Do you have a link to magnets that are thin enough they tuck underneath the standard CMON type mini and not cause it to wobble when on the game board?

Typically the magnets are a disc or a cylinder; you drill a small hole and superglue the magnet flush.  

For the Freelbades bases (like the Polar Bear) there are actually recesses molded into the underside of the base ... sorta like a honeycomb if it were round instead of hex.

Nothing I've painted so far have detatchable bases, and I'm not a fan of drilling out my mini.  I still feel bad about a door that I tried to recess some hinges.  Not sure it's in my DNA.

Check these out. I usually use the quarter inch for a standard and go up to a half inch for large sized minis. Or I will just add two.

Some of you might remember from some of my prior ramblings that altho I dabble in the garage, my dad is a reasonably experienced woodworker (one of my prized possessions is a solid cherry toy box that he made for me when I was 4 or 5; one of the few items in my will to be listed by name). He retired about 2 1/2 years ago and made his wood shop a priority. 

Part of year's Christmas gift to my brothers and I included a set of handmade dominoes and a box to hold them. Case is walnut and the dominoes are ash. He said it took him awhile to do all the dimples for 4 sets (He kept one!), even with a drill press!

Ps: my gift to him was a DMG Game of Ur. He was enthralled.

Google "Mexican Train".  It's a domino game I've had a lot of fun playing.  I learned it from my evil sister in Austin Texas.
