    We typically keep the heavy weapons and their crew on the large base, not a termie base, etc. This is due to the legality of the bases in question during tournaments so as not to lose on a technicality.

    Agreed it would be considered cheating.

    "Creativity aside, what tatic supports your reason?"

    Creativity is the only thing that'd make me do this, you can't just give models smaller bases for tactical benefits, that's cheating..

    Feel free to model them on smaller bases though and then have some larger one that you can place the small bases on in tournaments or other games that aren't 'friendly'.. (all games should be, lol, but you get it)

    Maybe. Everything is "true LOS" these days and you don't target the bases of models, so as long as you're careful with wound allocation and remember to discount a lasgun there's no difference. It might come up with close combat, true, but only if the HW team is the closest model to the target.

    doesn't really matter, you're supposed to mount them with the bases the model currently comes with, and they come with those big ones, hence the old 'wtf' rants that went on for pages back when the valk first came out with its crazy big base. as well as when SM/CSM terminators got switched to plastic kits and larger bases than regular infantry, so all the old metal ones had to be rebased to be tournament legal.

    if it were legal, the biggest thing about base size for the crews would most likely be on concerning how much space they take up in available cover that still allows for line of sight to shoot, ie hogging a window or building ledge while the rest of the squad has no space and has to sit behind unable to shoot... or some such, the general gist of it.

    I cut 20 mm holes on my heavy weapons bases. This allows me to take out the second heavy weapon gunner to depict a wound. It also allows me to use the second gunner independently if i'm not using the heavy weapon in an army list.

    Incidentally, i just learned chewing tobacco tins (skoal, kodiac, etc) are exactly 60mm, and work nicely as bases. Find yourself somebody who chews, and you can save a lot of cash on bases
