What is the appropriate base size for beats in 40k? I am using Chaos Warhounds to represent the new Dark Eldar Khymera, but the rectangular bases they come with do not seem right in the 40k-round-base standard. The size of the critters seem to me to be a medium base...
Opinions welcome but some more official reference is preferred. And before someone cite the BRB on "use base supplied with", these are fantasy models being used in 40k so that does not apply.

The old Dark Eldar warp beast models came with the same Rectangular bases that the warhounds probably have so I'd say that they are the "correct" bases, but really since there's no official model out yet you can use any size base that's appropriate for their stats. I use Dark Elf cold ones for my warp beasts and 40mm round bases just didn't look right so I stuck with the Rectangular ones they came with and have never had anyone complain about it. The newer Bike bases might look better if you can't stand the look of the square ones though.
The meat things seek to destroy ourselves. They hunt us as we hunt them but they are weak and uncertain. Bring them understanding of the power of ourselves through our strength and their fear. The inferior flesh will be entirely destroyed, all fragments will be smashed. Ourselves will fight to the last, all weak flesh must be consumed
As GW still produces the rectangular bases for other cavalry (and a rounded front/back), I'd agree that they should be legal and appropriate.
At the beginning of turn 1, I spray my opponent's army with the bacon flavored spray. Then I unleash my Boston Terrier Squiggoth who then devours their entire bacon flavored army! There is no defense against her cuteness! All are doomed!
