sorry just a quick question what base size do nurglings use? Unable to look it up at my friends house.
I believe they are on a 40mm base
5 per base too. ALthouugh, with impresive basing, you can probably get away with 4

Actually you could get away with three... You have to have atleast one model per wound for swarm bases, so you can have three nurglings per base... makes your bases go alot further. ^^

Personally, i think this sort of thing is silly. So long as a model is WYSIWYG, what difference doe the base make? You could have a dozen nurglings on a regular base, or three on a huge flying stand. It's still a nurgling base.
Yeah, but base size is important to the tactical usage of the unit. Smaller bases are easier to hide and there is a rule stating that you canot use a base smaller than the one a unit comes with, but you can go bigger.
3 per base is all I use, makes the little buggers go further.
The base rule is in the main rules book. I can't cite the page (don't have it on me) but it is in the beginning somewhere. It does state that you can use a bigger base for a model but never a smaller one. In CC models have to be in base-to-base contact, so altering the base could effect (albeit rarely) whether or not someone can actually reach a unit and be in base-to-base. Also, a models base determines whether or not it can pass between other models or if it has to go around. If you have a model that normally has a very large base, this makes a difference.Originally Posted by monsieurcartier
Granted, these circumstances might not occur often, but when they do, and if it's a tourney type game, you can bet people will care.
