I’m currently converting a heavily themed and converted daemon army and I have a question regarding the bases for my monstrous creatures.
My Daemon Princes and Bloodthirster are all converted from the ‘Inquisitor’ model range and my Lord Of Change is converted from the Sauron Necromancer model.
Anyway I’m curious to know if there would be any problems if I used 40mm bases for the Bloodthirster and Lord of Change Model. Normally I would use the 60mm but they seem rather big for the ‘Inquisitor’ models that I’ve converted and it seems unnecessary to have the base bigger that it needs to be. Plus the smaller base would make them both easier to transport and move over small pieces of terrain (such as city of death terrain) without risk of damaging the model.
What do you think?
Also I like to make a quick note that my aim here is not to gain an advantage during games by using smaller bases; my goal is simply to make an impressive looking converted army.
Sadly because bases play a role in the rules of the game, such as base to base contact in cc and when determining rangers etc, it would end up giving you advantages. If you played in most tournaments you would probably have to use the base size that the gw model comes with. However if you were playing with your local gaming group it would be up to them. Personally I wouldn't have a problem with it if it was a casual game but if it was in a competition game then I would be a bit iffy.
I say it's fine to do it.
Your army is pretty amazing anyway so i don't think anyone is going to
moan. I use 25mm bases for my ork nobs for the same reason the 40mm bases
are just too big.
I AM BOOMER!
Greater daemons come on 60mm bases. Daemon princes come on 40mm bases (except the nurgle one).
If your mates have no problem with it; then cool.
However, tournaments tend to be fairly strict on it.

The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.
But as to personal preference, why not? i modelled my DP on a bigger base because i liked that for the model.
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.
