    Hellcannon Base size

    Does anyone know if there is an official base size for the Hellcannon? Mine didn't come with one and it being a monster there are a few options that seem reasonable.
    Is there an official ruling/guide for the size? If not, what do most people use?

    The generally accepted base size is 80x100 but it doesn't give you much room to make it pretty. I use a 100x100 movement tray myself and I haven't encountered a problem yet.

    It doesn't have a 'correct' base size so just base it on anything you see fit. As long as you're not abusing it. There's no correct base size for the Shrine either. At least not until they do a model for it.............. *Tumbleweed*

    I have a home-made base I made from wood which is a little bit big. I made it big enough to fit the chains and skullpiles that it comes with. But when I brought it to a tournament I got dinged on the appropriate base.
    I think I will interpret this as any standard warhammer base is fine, so either the 50x50 or the 50x100 bases.
    Sorry brain, I've never seen an 80x100 or 100x100 base, what are they used for?
    I am attempting to compile a guide for the Hellcannon. Keeping all acurate rules for it in a single, condensed form. This information is valuable.

    Model yourself a base, I would use a movement tray and trim it to size, if you don't make it more than 5mm wider (each side) than the hellcannon model, I don't think you should have any problems (even at the most anal tourneys).

    I'm not sure how they can penalise you for an inappropriate base seeing as the model doesn't come with one. That's a bit harsh. The model barely fits on a chariot base as it is and wont fit on at all with all those chains etc....

    i just made a base myself so it all fits nice
    even made some holes in it to put the dwarfs on it
    if it gets in CC only 6 models can attack it, like fighting a warmachine (or does this doesn't apply on a hellcannon? )

    The hellcannon is a monster with handlers, so it follows their rules for CC
    Anyone in base to base contact can attack the cannon and the hanlders eat the unsaved wounds on a 5+
    I dare say that the base size does infact matter for this reason.

    just tel them you act as if it's a chariot base... not that hard to calculate how much can attack..

    Lol, that is the obvious thing to do but it implies that the chariot base is the correct base for the model.
    At this point that there is no offical base size for the thing just yet.

    The most popular choices seem to be chariot size or screaming bell size, I'll make sure to note it in my guide (comming soon!)
