I always cut away the feet plastic thing that goes into the base (for small models), and for bigger models I cut away the pins of the feet. I paint the model first, then I make a really elaborate base, and glue the guys on the bases sometimes with repositioned feet. It would be better if you did cut him away and redid the base. (a few times I would do what you did, but then I would break the guys from bases, and that would break the bases in half, but you can still successfully fix them, and make your model look great.)
Ill show you an example
All 3 of those guys were glued into the slots, and their bases had sand carpets glued, foilage, stones, particles etc. but I still fixed them and made better bases. Also sorry for my mediocre painting job, I suxxors.
I had a little giggle about the eyes, I just painted them roughly before hand because I knew I couldn't manage it afterwards I will try and make them glow though as he's a sorceror, like jaffa from aladin...but cooler
Sooo I kinda powered through with this, got into the swing of things and kept going and its now midnight but I'm pretty much finished, I know I missed the skull at the waist at least. I do very much hate painting yellow though learning as I go though, I think it's either a chaos lord next or just a regular marine depends how I feel
EDIT : Will have some chaos lord photos up soonish
