every damn hormogaunt that i assemble if it dosent have its talons extremely close to its body it falls over making it very frustrating doing cool poses. WHAT can i do to weight the base down easily?

Some people use pennies, some people use green stuff or a cheaper putty to stuff the bottom of the base. Some others just pin the model onto the base, hiding the pin with static grass.

Those little blighters are a pain in that way.

well i thought about the penny thing right away however the hormogaunts now have slotted bases so......the pennies kinda dont fin into the thing.

Metal bitz work well. If you can stand to lose the cent, cut up a penny and stick the bitz to the sides of the...ahem..slotta. That way, the base sits flat, and the Hormie will behave.

metal washers, I do it with my IG it makes them a tiny bit taller but no biggie and you can't tell they're on it. Plus it allows you to make a movement tray for them ;)

I slightly bent the ankle to make it more leaping upright, then superglued a small rock to it to brace it.

Birdshot works well. Just fill the base with superglue, dip in birdshot, and it should get enough to weigh the model down. Far cheaper than a penny or metal bits, oddly enough, too-- the amount of birdshot you use on a base is pretty negligable.

I just went and bought a jumbo pack of round split fishing weights. Pry them open, and using wire cutters seperate the two halves. Then glue them under, on top, etc.
The up side is with some sand any you add to the top base can look like smooth stones poking through the sands surface.
Also for under the base the big ones can be a little tall but some pressure, and pliers flattens them right out.
