    Giant Base Size??

    Howdy, I am in the process of scratch-building a Chaos Giant but i have no idea about the base size - this is my confusion: 1) base-chart says 50x50 2) chaos giant box (i think) and a redshirt at the store told me 50x75?? so which one is it then???

    The old giant model had a 50mm base, but the new one has 75x50. To be honest i dont think it really matters whickh you use, so long as its atkeast 50mm across the front and atleast 50mm deep then its fine as a monster base.

    GW's base size chart says 50x50mm. Granted, the thing hasn't been updated in 4 years, but it's the closest we've got to official word.

    I just went looking for it on the GW website and was unable to find it. I guess maybe they're either updating it or just getting rid of it.

    Giants are on an odd rectangular base, not a square one, it must be 50mm by 75mm.....

    I have one of the current/new giants in my greenskin army and can confirm it is 50mm wide at the front and 75mm deep.
