Does someone knows the size and number of base for the CSM part of Shadowspear ? 

 

(For me to order my resin base in advance). 


I looked down the sights of my rifle, my target looked back. It's eyes were all the eyes I'd ever loved. They promised everything I could ever want. Love, comfort, safety. An end to this nightmare. I felt my will draining out of me, entranced by those eyes.

(For me to order my resin base in advance). 

 

Looked to me like: 

 

Marines x10 - 32mm
Greater possessed x2 - 40mm

Obliterators x2 - fairly certain 50mm. 

Master of Possession might be a 40mm (fairly certain), his base is far bigger then a 32, but I doubt a 50. 

Venomcrawler I am not sure of its if a circular or an oblong. 100mm or 80mm around I am not certain.

Venom crawler has been confirmed to be 100, characters are always on 40s. The rest is right

To the best of my knowledge daemons don't exclusively bind to living hosts. There are countless examples of them inhabiting wargear and otherwise lifeless engines of war. A daemon animating a shell of armour to interact with realspace dosen't seem like that much of a stretch.

 

but it's not just an armor. It's essentially an already possessed suit of armor (even if that's not the literal term used). It's already sorcerous in nature, there's a user of sorts. a disembodied user controlling the suit of armour pretty much exactly as you describe it. Possessing it again makes no real sense from a lore perspective.

A living body already has a user also. Possession is about a daemonic entity overriding that. It makes the same sense in either situation.

You have to think more twisted!

The Daemons promise the Rubricae a new chance - the possibility of having a corporeal body again.
...but it's the daemons' bodies that will fill the armors, with the Rubticae's souls merged with the daemon entirely.
Properly gruesome and tragic.

That sounds pretty good Tyriks!
The question now is how to cram a blue or pink horror into a rubrikae...

Also, I am thinking of a version of "sassy nurgling" except with a brimstone horror - and his mate poping out of the neck joint of a rubrikae's armour

You have to remember - rubricae don't have wills generally. This is visible is all literary depictions of them, like French's Ahriman books or ADB's Black Legion books. The rubricae are passive, without desires or identities even, subject to whatever sorcerer instructs them. When one does something that isn't like a rubricae, like express a semblance of its old identity, it is a unique startling moment for Khayon. But otherwise they are without identity, will or a being to bargain with.

However for this discussion, the Rubric stopped the fleshchange, so it stopped the daemonic manipulation and disruption of each marine's body. And it changed their armour. So maybe the Rubric makes it impossible to imbue new daemons onto the old armour of rubricae?

Not always. The Lord of Contagion from DI for example sits on a 50mm base.

Marine characters in regular power armour are on 40mm bases. The Lord of Contagion is in terminator armour.

Malefic Plaguecaster (Power Armour) is on a 32mm and Lord Felthius (Terminator Armour) is in a 40mm. There isn't a solid rule on this.

Lord Felthius fits on a 40mm while the Dark Imperium version of The Lord of Contagion doesn't really. Its mostly that simple with character models just tending to be a bit bigger anyway and then the odd character bumped up a size for consistency with the other ones.

Damn, well i guess i'll have to wait the end of the week for the true base size.

I can confirm: 32mm x10 for the CSM, 40mm x3 for the Master of Possession and Possessed, 50mm x2 for the Obliterators, and one round 100mm for the Venomcrawler.
