Hello All,

 

So I have decided to take a break from my Flame wolves for the moment to rebase my Old Eldar army.

 

Can anyone please point me in the right direction for what units have what base sizes. 

My Wraithlords and Warwalkers are the old metal ones on square 40mm bases. 

But i want to ensure the rest of my army is compliant as well.

 

Many thanks in Adance

Units no longer have mandatory base sizes in 40K so you don't have to worry about being compliant. You can even keep the old square bases if you want.

If you want to upgrade for looks then the current plastic Wraithlord and War Walkers are both on 60mm circular bases. My metal Wraithlords are still on 40mm bases though and it does not cause a problem.
Sanguinius stood up, stretching his wings to their full extent. He flexed his hands. "I need no blade".
It was as though Sanguinius gleamed with pale light, his face white, eyes becoming blood-red, surrounded by the golden crown of flowing hair. Guilliman had witnessed glimpses of of his brother's wrath before, but had never seen the true Blood Angel unleashed. Sanguinius surged forward on alabaster wings, half a meter from the floor, whiteness streaming from him like flames.

The 40mm is a little small for wraithlords, mines toes poke off the end. They'd look good on a 50mm. 60 mm might be pushing it for the old small metal wraithlords, unless they're dynamically posed.
