I just started my first WoC army. And I want to build a exalted hero BSB from a Nurgle Ogre on a 40mm base? Is that legal? Or do I have to use a 25mm base?
Idealy it needs to be on a 25x25mm base, unless mounted on somthing which takes a 40x40mm base (think daemonic steed is a 50x50mm base).
In the grand scheme of things its not going to matter until;
1) you try to rank him up inside a unit
2) you get fired at using template weapons
3) you come up a against an awkward plaer who is addamant that the extra base sizes inceases the range of your BSB Bubble of influence.
You could get away with a 50x50 base as at least you can rank up that way and estimate that the base also couynts as 3 whatever unit you put him in (as long as you take the points into account for the unit).
If you're giving him the Mark of Nurgle, just say that your Exalted is on a Palanquin of Nurlge. If I recall, that's a 50mm base, and an Ogre would work just fine. He also still counts as Infantry and therefore gets all of the same rules as an Exalted on foot. Just remind people that it's NOT an Ogre, and they don't need to worry about Stomp.
40mm is a problem.
you can get creative with anything in the multiples of 25mm (25x50, 50x50)
Biggest problem is the footprint of a 40mm won't match up with any of our infantry. Footprint is a big deal.
Thx everyone! Okay so a 50x50 base is better. Bigger base is always cooler.
Given that it allows an opponent to attack your model (assuming he's on 20mm bases) with four models instead of three, he'd be an idiot to complain about an infinitessimally larger BSB bubble.
