i am converting my defiler and i want to add a base to it. since the normal defiler does not come with a base i would like to know if using the large blast template would be ok for rtt tournements and grand tournments. if any one knows let me know. i know its not a normal size base but its too big to fit on a dreadnought base. ill post some pictures of it later today when i got some more time.
Page 6 of the BGB deals with this. You can mount a model on a base that is bigger if you like, you just can't "shrink" the model through a smaller base. So you should be more than fine.
Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but I think with vehicles (such as the Defiler) you measure distances to the hull of the vehicle (i.e. the leg or whatever's closest).

Send me a hello if you remember me.
I saw a game last week where there was an argument over where one draws LoS to the Defiler and what counts as the hull. I believe a base would be reasonable, as a vehicle has line of sight drawn to it to either the base or the hull. This could really clear up how to target a Defiler; as it counts as size 3, you'd be able to see it in many cases anyway. I say go for it.
This is a question I have had as well. Almost all of the rules for walker refer to the base of the vehicle. Defilers are, to my knowledge, the only baseless walker.
This causes many of the rules for how they can be targeted and who they can hit to be confusing. Especially given the extreme size of their legs. The number of potential incoming and outgoing CC attacks radically changes based on weather you measure from the legs or the hull or what.
So with the legs spread out nicely it can't be charged?
Ok, it's a somewhat silly question but still, what do you say?

That's exactly the point. The legs apparently can be configured by unscrupulous players to avoid being targeted so they are considered outside the 'hull' and thus not part of the target.
Bear in mind this is hearsay on my part. I cannot recall where I heard this ruling.
But of course, if they can't be targeted, you could charge through them. They aren't part of any hull or base, so they don't count as the model itself.
Really, it would have been easier if the Defiler had come with a base. Or if they covered it in the FAQ. But no....
wouldnt waste a blast template on it either, an old CD would do nicely
