    Titan question

    I've never seen any rules regarding what base size Titans should be on.

    I'm taking an educated guess that Forge World titans (Specifically the Eldar Revenant in my case) don't come supplied with bases - You have to come up with the good there yourself.

    Right exactly. Whether to base it or not is entirely up to the owner.

    You're basically all but forced into it with the Revenant because it's really not suited to being a freestanding model, but the Hierophants, Warhounds and Reavers are fairly well capable of standing on their own, so bases are technically optional.

    As big as your deployment zone.

    That would make for one heck of a stomp attack...but seriously though with my warhound titan I made the base a rectangular shape the length and width of it upper body since that was it's biggest main body piece.

    I'd rather stick to the 40k standard with a round base to be honest, but thanks for the guidelines anyway

    My chaos warhound titan is based on a piece of 8mm MDF board that is oval in shape approximatly 8"x4".

    I have seen chaos warhounds that don't use bases but I always cringe especially if the table they are standing on is anything other than flat. Besides I wanted a dramatic striding pose and so pinning it to a plank of wood makes it more sturdy.

    If your looking for a circular shape try making a base with a diameter of 8-9 inches.

    Does anyone know the rough dimensions of the revenant in comparison to the warhound? Just so I can tell if the base size Mad Cat is using for his warhound would be also good if and when I get a rev.

    Getting back to ‘base-ics’ you may as well investigate the use of a compact disc as a base here.

    They are practically free and about the right size for anything Apocalypse based.

    Cheers.
