I am going to put together a Skulltaker on a Chariot for a Chaos Daemons 40K army. My plan at this point is to put the Skulltaker model on a slightly modified Corpse Cart from Warhammer, and then use the evil looking Juggernaut from the Warhammer Khorne Chaos Lord on Juggernaut, without the Lord of course, to pull it.
My question is what base size and shape I should use. I may try to just use the tray from the Corpse Cart if the Jugger will fit on there as well, after I shorten and modify the Corpse Cart.
Is there any rule/guide to go by when creating custom models such as this for 40K? For instance, should it have rounded edges if it is 40K oriented?
Something suitably impressive will no doubt take up some table space, but I don't want something overly large. I also don't want to offend tourney folks if I plop a rectangular based unit into a 40K game.
I assume the answer is "best judgement". However, I'd like any pointers or experience you folks might be able to refer to.
Thanks in advance.
Just a thought havg got the new kit.
The valkyrie has an oval base that is a similar length to the fantasy chariot bases and maybe half as wide again.
I have no idea if GW will be selling these bases seperately (they should as they are much better than the normal option for skimmers), so if you can get one it may work for you.
For my Skulltaker on a chariot conversion, I simply used the base from the Chaos warriors chariot I used for the conversion, after talking with store personnel and checking references online, it seemed like the best way to go about it. It's still a little confusing in game, but for the most part I work rather well, I can post a picture if you like.
Posting a picture would be great. Thanks for the answer and effort.
It's an awful phone camera image, but it gives you an idea of how he fits, as you can see the only major issues are that the spikes from the wheels extend to outside the base, but I felt they just looked too good to cut off.

That is actually very close the image I had in my mind. I'll have to check out that chariot. And I agree on the spikes -- icing on the cake. Great conversion!
square edges shouldn't be an issue, flesh hounds and rough riders are supplied on rectangular bases, the new bike bases for longer models are a recent addition so there are still plenty of 90 degree angles poking around the 40K universe.
