    techmarine basing

    hallo,

    is there any reason why i can't put a Techmarine or Master of the Forge on a Terminator base? or a Dreadnought base?
    its just the little base just looks awkward in my opinion.

    thanks.

    You can put things on bigger bases no problem, AFAIK.

    You can mount models on bigger bases. You cannot, however, mount models on smaller bases.

    I must admit, I always wanted to see a conscript platoon all mounted on 60mm bases.

    But then, I can be weird like that.

    Also, you should google "garfield minus garfield". Awesome.

    A friend's Ork army has two 60mm bases with 3 Gretchen attached. It's kind of a diorama style too, with quite a lot of conversion work gone in.
    It looks really good having these two lots of 3 Gretchen running forward surrounded by a sea of individual models. For simplicity, we say it’s a single model with 3 wounds and 3 attacks. There is even a little slot between two legs to hold a single dice to dictate the number of wounds left - its pure genius! Still dies to rapid bolter fire, but looks good =) No idea if it would be tauney legal thou...

    60mm is a a terminator base, right?

    cool, i just have always thought it looks really stupid with this massive guy carrying a servo-harness, on a tiny normal (25mm?) base.

    cheers.

    oh, another question, awhile back i remember seeing a dedicated transport for a techmarine and servitors, and the razorback/rhino had a sort of crane thing, does that pose any game consequences? or just a cool conversion?

    ciao.

    No, 40mm is a Terminator base.

    My Techmarine is on a 40mm (Terminator) base, and I've never had any complaints. I agree they look silly on the small base!

    I've always liked to put my commanders on 40mm bases (if they were originally on 28mm). They just seem to look a bit more beefy that way. Plus you can make a more scenic base

    couple o' more questions,

    i really dislike that bikes get bases and attack bikes don't, can i put my attack bikes on dreadnought bases?

    also, does having a larger base affect game play?

    is it a bad idea to make high bases gamewise? for sergeants, captains terminators anf the like.

    cheers!

    PS. i had the idea of putting a Land Raider on the mumakil base, is that a bit idiotic? and what bases are out there for Rhinos and Razorbacks?
