I know this may look like a modeling question, but I need a rules-wise answer:
If I want to put a warmachine on a base, should I use the chariot base or the ogre-sized one? Any other?
I have no idea!
Most war machines come without base so i guess youl have to improvise if you want to use one.
I use different bases for my war machines depending on each army and theme. (My Rock lobbers for example have round blast templates as Base)
Last tournament someone else used some weird shapes he cut out himself, which were just fine in the end. I'd say just use something that fits nicely under the whole machine...
- For some reason i like round bases for this. Have a look at the 40K monsterbases etc.

Since War Machines actually ''have'' a base in the new rules, I think its your own choice. As long as you measure to and from the nearest machine part, I think you're alright.
Well, they actually don't have a base in the new rules. When charging a warmachine you just have to touch a part of the warmachine itself.
There's nothing wrong with basing them however. I've seen round bases, square and chariot bases ( these tend to hit well with stone throwers ) , all are fine. I myself base them on monster bases, so you've got a bit of room left. Basing your warmachines will help fit them in with the rest of your army and make them look nicer.
Thanks for the answers, the round bases somehow sound the best, taking into account the 8th edition warmachine combat rules
Hell, now I need to find some round bases xD
Sigh......I think this is the second time, I forget a, dont.
Actually DONT ''have'' a base....
I'd say put them on a 50x50mm base. Avoid round bases, since war machines can still be charged from more than one direction and it makes it nice and easy as to how many models can attack.
The only time I'd say use a bigger base is with the Hellcannon.

Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone
I would say round bases myself. Just looks nicer. And Rork, how many can attack is dictated by the rules. How many are touching a base is irrelevant.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
round or square depends on preference. Although when looking back, round might have been nicer for mine. * dubs wether he should rip the bases off *
