I was wondering what others do to base their RBT. Mine are currently pretty boring - just how they come out of the box with no base. Do you mount it on a base, maybe with it perched on a rock or the like? Also what do you do with the crew? Does anyone include them on the base of the RBT? Maybe just have slots for them behind the machine so you can take them off when they have to defend it (hopefully this doesn't happen to often, right? ). How would you even do that?
Links and pictures are appreciated!
On the GW site under the blog of two gamers part 7 you can see a picture of a blot thrower based on a large round template. (the size that also comes with demon princes.)
Looks both easy and good. Models behind it. Gonna do it for my own RBT's as well.
I was considering the solution from the GW page as well. It makes the model look much better in my opinion AND it can prevent confusion about range (charge distance, general's leadership etc.)
If you don't have to move the crew, it seems even more tempting to somehow add them to the base (whether removable or not).
Just remember that unless it has been FAQed/Errata'ed the Army book always takes precedence over the rule book. So unless/until the HE errata says otherwise the Bolt Thrower has 3 wounds. Page 484 in the Bestiary section of the rule book has the bolt thrower listed with 3 wounds.
So the only question now is does it have 3 crew?
which is why, in 8th edition, I play them with 3 crew b/c the BRB states the number of crew is represented by the wounds, not the wounds represented by the crew. But again this might be one of those questions that will continue to come up, therefore just make sure you get it exp[lained prior to going to any tournament.
