Hi Smurfing Ghoul|
Your designs look pretty well suited for White Strong & Flexible. You won't have a problem with the Nylon breaking or the pieces standing up - standing up on their own will be more a question of their center of mass and balance.
For the base block... if you leave it as a separate shell, and have that shell intersect with the main shell, our software will interpolate that and combine the two bodies - so you don't have to combine them yourself (you may want to, though, just to be sure)
To hollow them out, you can put a 5mm hole at the very bottom. It looks like your legs, if they were hollow, would be too narrow for a lot of powder to escape - so you may want to add another escape hole somewhere on the body so the powder from the body can escape (just put it somewhere inconspicuous)
The models are looking good!
