Hail Brothers!

 

I love the rapier weapons platform, I currently have 3 laser destroyers and I'm getting some of the solar quad mortars (As I don't like the Marine quad/thunderfire ones, I mean look at them, they're amazing!).

My question is what do you base them on? They don't have bases, like some vehicles I guess. But that feels a little odd to me.

 

I've stuck the laser destroyers on box dread bases, but I've realised that in ZM rules, if it can't fit through the gap, it can't go! obviously I don't want my favourite gun carriages to get stuck in the middle of a boarding action, so I'm looking at alternative bases.

 

I'm thinking of the 74mm x 42mm oval bases, that some of the AoS mounts use (Stormcast Palladors for ref, as I have a couple about).

 

Has anyone come across this before? Do you even care about the base size? 

 

Cheers 


Iron within!

ManticoreRich, Those are some fine looking rapiers!

What size base are they mounted on? Have you tried moving them through ZM boards? Any issues?

Loving your hobby blog as well there mate. Gives me something new to drool over!

Everyone in my league doesn't base their rapiers- we play a lot of ZM and it isn't really an issue. If you prefer the look though, go for it!

What a baseless accusation! Sorry, couldn't resist. I have three, always preferred the look without a base.

I prefer the look as without a base the rapier sits quite lower than everything else, and just seems a bit "off" even though vehicles don't have them and it's fine
