So I browsed through GW's GT rules as I envision future conversions to my marines chapter. Not that I have ever been to a Games Day, or intend to anytime soon, but I'm a stickler for making sure my army remains "legal."
The one thing I couldn't find referenced was bases. What if, say, I wanted to field a tactical squad marine on, say, a terminator-sized base? Is this "legal?" I have some conversions in mind for my assault squad, but I might need larger bases to pull it off.
This is a modelling issue, not a painting one. Post into proper threads...
This issue is handled in the main rules for 40K, page 6, right column, "Bases", line five: "Games Workshop miniatures..." Thus it shouldn't pose any legality problems for you to put your models on larger bases.
"The meat things seek to destroy ourselves. They hunt us as we hunt them but they are weak and uncertain. The inferior flesh will be entirely destroyed, all biomatter consumed. Ourselves will fight to the last, all weak flesh must be devoured."
No reason why this can't go in painting, but it probably does belong in modelling or convertion to be honest...
Anyway, just to expand, you can mount models on any size base you like, as long as it is at least as big as the base it comes with.
ie: You can put them on bigger bases, but not smaller ones.

I went through this a while ago, wanting to put my heavy weapons folks on some larger bases with background...how could they be illegal when they're so snazzy?!?!
