i was reading a section in the forum today about how most of the model has to be Citadel parts and that peices crafted from other crafters are not allowed in tourneys. and the converstions that you do must be *mostly* all citadel. now this sparked a question in my mind.
i recently found these really cool coins that this company manufactures. they are supposed to be like some sort of good luck charm pocket coin that brings u fortune or something. But as i was looking at it, i was thinking, man this would make the coolest base for my grey knights.
so how is GW when it comes to bases? like, i dont think the base should be that big of a deal. I know the peice is not GW, but i am using it as a cool scenic base. and it is a coin that is made as a good luck keepsake sorta thing. the army i am currently building, i want to be able to take to tourneys//events, which is why i am putting SOOO much time into them. but now that i think about it, i dont want to have myself thrown out (so to speak) because i used non-citadel items for my bases.
This is what the token that i have looks like:
does anyone think that using these as bases will be a problem? scale wise, they are about half way between a 24mm base and a 54mm base.
Basically, if those coins are bigger or the same size as a regular base, then they are fine to use on PAGKs, but to use them on termies you will need to make them the same size or bigger than the bases that termies come on.

The guys above have covered size so I wont go any further into that. As far as I am aware the tournament rules are referring to competing companies (i.e. Rackham) when they say you cannot use other companies parts. The company that made these coins is unlikely to be in competition with GW so, as long as the model as a whole is over 50% GW parts, I see no problem with using them as bases in a tournament.
thnx guys. i didnt know the rulez about the sizes having to be same or larger then the original base. which means, i will have to come up with some kind of extension method for them for my termies. maybe lots of GS or milliput and make a ring around them to bring them to the similar size as the current Bases.
and any ideas on how to extend the bases? i would just glue them on the current base for the terminators, but i want the writing on the bottom to still be readable lol i am weird like that!
Maybe you could somehow hollow out the regular bases so that the coin fits inside? Or, are the coins ferromagneitc, that is, will a magnet stick to them? If so, you could put magnets in the regular bases so they stay on during play, but you can take them off for display.
