I'm looking at starting daemons to compliment my CSM but would like more bang for my buck. Seeing as Chaos Daemons are also Daemons of chaos i was wondering how much people would care if i were to have my units on square bases for the purpose of not having to buy double ( i want to play fantasy as well) i can only assume turnies would not allow this but has anyone here tried this in friendly games. or maybe some sort of circle base ontop of the square magnet setup. im sure this has come up with this armies unique situation but have been unable to find it by skimming. any help or contributing information will be much appreciated.
The Decayed Ones 2500 points of nurgly goodness.
Necron- Ice Wraiths of Scy-mir 2000+
Imperial Daemon Hunters- 1500
I can't see this as a problem in a friendly game, as the appeal is so very obvious. Or you could do as Ravendove says and magnetize the bases. You'll have to check with tournament organizers.
I have a friend who is currently doing Daemons and is making them inter-changeable. He mounts them all on round bases and then makes square movement trays that fit them on. These square movement trays have round holes cut into it so they still fit in with standard WHFB sizes.
Either way works and is totally legal.

The larger square 25mm base is tournament legal, but the smaller square 20mm base is not. You're always allowed to use a larger base than the norm, but you're never allowed to use a smaller base, and since the small fantasy bases are smaller than the round 40k ones, they aren't strictly tournament legal. However, the 25mm bases are larger than the 40k ones, so they're fine, although some people may complain that working out close combat is more difficult.
In any case, I doubt anyone will really care besides at tournaments, where they tend to nitpick every last detail.

I'd go with circles just to be safe personally. I'd have no problems with it unless the player was doing some kind of janky thing to take advantage.

Put them on round bases and then put the round bases on top of the square ones? Not sure size wise how that would work though but its something Ive been thinking about it.
Currently play: 4000+ of Black Legion
R^2 v XY
If R^2 is a lower number then XY that would work say you have enough space to fit it inside if you could smudge it up. But if the D of the circle base is bigger then X or Y then it would have the circle over lapping on the edges.
:/ easier to test it out then do math hammer to see if it fits
