Default Noob question on AOBR Dreadnought

Hey all, a real noobish question here. I'm putting together the models from my Assault on Black Reach set, and I'm looking at my Dreadnought now. Its got pegs on the base of its feet, but the only large base in the set doesn't have any peg holes. Am I supposed to drill holes in the base, or cut off the pegs, or what? Or is there something I'm completely overlooking about this? Any advice will be much appreciated, I don't want to be having to hack up my models if I don't have to!

I was going to either drill the base or make a taller base out of cork and use those pegs to pin it to the base when I got around to putting it on it.

Edit: Cork matting torn into ragged edges will look like rock/rubble when painted.

If you turn the base over you will see the guide holes for the pegs, just push a sharp craft knife through the two holes that are located were the feet would sit, or just cut the pegs off and glue the feet to the base, the set is made to be assembled without glue , but if you have glue then loose the pegs.

:p wow I so did not think to look at the underside of that base. Still debating the cork thing though.

The cork base will definitley give it an awesome/customized look.

Thanks for the quick responses guys. I cut off the pegs from the Dreadnought feet, seemed easier than trying to drill holes through the base! Thanks again!
