I've collected most of the models I need for my necrons. Its time to start assembly. I was testing various base ideas and came to the realization that the necron warriors fit on normal infatry bases like crap. I want some basic scenic bases (probably lava/rock) and am considering putting all my necron warriors on large, terminator sized bases.
I can think of no real reason not to, from a game advantage/disadvantage point of view, but I thought I would throw it up here for others input.
My biggest concern from a modeling perspective, is the model being overshadowed by the size of the base.
The more base a model has, the more enemies that can come into CC with one base. And, as bad as Cron warriors are in CC, that's a terrible notion.
It would also make for a nightmare for teleporting. How many big bases can you fit within two inches of the monolith gate. Maybe 4 or 5? Instead of 12 or 11?
And how much uglier that makes it for VoD to stay one inch away form enemies after the DS.
It would also make it difficult to keep unit formations tighter, as to get as many rapid fire shots as possible.
Granted the warrior just barely fits onto the regular base, but it not that bad, in my honest opinion. I wouldn't go to bigger bases, maybe just use cork board to make the scenic part of the base just a smidgen bigger!
Hope this helps with the game perspective!

d.b is right on. There are definite practical disadvantages to this notion, not just aesthetic, the Monolith portal being the glaring disadvantage. I cannot site a rule, but for some reason this strikes me as being against the rules.

db is totally right on this one. your warriors would be totally gimped by taking larger bases. the biggest problem i see is if you ever want to pul through a squad of warriors i dont belive you could get even half what you need through.
but theres nothing against the rules that you cant. you can always put a model on a bigger base, but just not a smaller one
With their regular bases the toes poke off the base. Big deal.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
