Thanks! 

 

I dunno how other people do this, but I made the base from a couple of 5mm plywood scraps (one 3" square-ish, and the other slightly larger than the mini's built-in base).  I glued them together and traced the outline of the original mini base on the top for reference, then I poured down glue, sand, and aquarium rocks.  When it was heavy enough (and looked the way I wanted it), I primered and painted. 

 

There's a seam where the original base and new base come together, so I covered this up with lots of flock.

 

I thought about putting a magnet in the base so they could be separated for storage, but I've never tried that before and I am skeptical that I can be precise enough with a drill.  :-/
