I am scratchbuilding a female giant for my Slaanesh army - she looks great - actually she is looking very similar to a Keeper of Secrets too! Thing is, in the interest of saving A/B, greenstuff, and the other greenstuff ($), I was thinking of doubling her as either a chaos giant OR a keeper of secrets - the catch is this: Her base size is 50x75, not 50x50 like the normal little keeper - so technically the base is too large (i don't really see how this gives me any unfair advantage though, since the arrow target is just that much larger).
Also, forgeworld has a larger keeper of secrets - what base size it that on? If the forgeworld keeper has the same rules then it is probably safe to assume that base size doesn't really matter that much
What do you all think of doubling the giant as keeper??
The base size could only become an issue if someone actually objected to it, and I cant think of any reason that anyone would object to you having a larger base size. It only benefits your opponent.
The only thing would maybe be spell range? Just assure them you will always measure range from her head or something.
To be honest it should be fine with most players. Maybe at a Tournement you would have to check with the organisers, but other that that it should be fine in friendly gaming.
drill out the feelt and rare-earth her feet to the bases. That way, if you want a giant, you can pop her onto the 50x75mm and then stick her back on the 50x50mm for a keeper. You can bitz-order the bases.
And actually, most forgeworld stuff requires opponent permission anyways. so their model isn't a 100% bet.
Lastly, on bigger bases: bigger bases are good for heavy hitters. That big base will put more models into base base, so yeah, you get extra strikes, but it brings characters into bsb too, so that giant can target them. Some special rules also make a bigger base worth it:
from the Vampire Counts-
hand of dust: any model in BASE to BASE contact at the start of the movement phase takes an immediate S5 hit.
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.

Ok, ok... i will post a pic of it - actually i have been dying to post several pics of my conversions. To be honest, i like painting and the like, but conversion/scratchbuilding is REALLY what i love about this game. Do not get me wrong, i am not claiming to be an awesome sculptor or anything - but i am pretty good i think at converting. You may be a bit unhappy to notice that the KOS i post is at the present time headless, boobless, missing 2 arms, missing details etc, but you should bet an idea, a fairly good idea i think, of where i am going with this one. Once i post the pic of KOS here i will post my other recent conversions in the appropriate conversion forum. What thread tells me how to post the digigal pic? or is it a simple matter of what?
