How many rippers are u ment to stick on a base and what size shud the base be small or large
Three or four and the base should be the 40mm round one. I normally use four rippers per base.
The fire's going out...pass me another heretic.
why shud u use 3-4 rippers. that wud mean u get less bases for the amount of rippers. Is there anything offical about this becuase atm i have 2 rippers on the small bases dunno what size the small bases are. It just seems stupid to me putting four on a base it means if i want more rippers i have to spend more money. And tbh i spent enough
You can put a single Ripper on a base if You want to, nothing's stopping You since there are no official rules on how many swarm models need to be on a base.
However, most people go with a minimum of 3.
And it's not like You need to buy them separately... You get them free when You buy Warriors, Gaunts and even the odd single one on the Monstrous sprue of the Tyrant and Carnifex. =)
"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."
3-4 seems to be the accepted norm. Any more than 4 and the base get crowded. Three seems logical to me as the swarmâ€™s stats have the same number of attacks and wounds.
The small base is what gaunts stand on; the ripper base is the one the warriors stand on.
It is usually 3-4 rippers per base, as has been stated there are no rules stating this, hell you can have one ripper per base if you want, it just seems more... fluffy to have a swarm of them on a base also the ripper base has 3 wounds, does a lone ripper look like it has 3 wounds? no it looks like it has 1 so most people think that 3 rippers would be feasible, also this topic has been discussed before...
Rippers per base
Good luck and may the hive mind favour your dice rolls! :a
