TGA Ultimate Guide to Bases in Age of Sigmar

138 posts in this topic

Hi, 

With the help of TGA Community we have put together a base size chart.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ohYLSaHzf8v5FM7Luou-wNtA5YEPv9DkglbrO_n9ukk/edit?usp=sharing

it was an open link but members of THE 9TH AGE community defaced it, so you will have to post below any feedback. 

Sizes are:

Rounds

25
32
40
50
60
80
100
130
160

Ovals

60x35
75x46
90x52
105X70
120x92
170X105

 

Thanks to @Antipodean7 for the 'Assumed' base sizes chart - https://www.dropbox.com/s/wqsx9u96fihqbz0/Warhammer%20base%20size%20chart%20V1.pdf?dl=0

More basing resources.

This is a guide to 40k Bases i found - Tharses Project: Guide to 40k bases

You missed 20mm rounds. Perfect for Moonclan Grots, Clanrats, and Dwarf Warriors. :)

I was wondering if using 20mm bases was a thing.

It's contentious. But I think some things look silly on bases that are too bug.

There's no model released by GW that needs to be on a round 20mm base to look good. Far too small and if you play base to base.... A bit beardy.

Would you like base sizes visibly used by the GW studio entered? It's pretty easy to work out a lot of the base sizes they're using from the warscroll pics.

I can see they've got 'Grots' (Gnoblars and Goblins on foot) on 25mm rounds for instance, while Ogors/Ogres are on 40mm rounds.

If yes, mark them red or green in the document?

Yes.  Anything that is in a GW print will be in black.

If it's an 'assumed' base size then it will be in red.

OK, adding some in I've worked out from the pics so far!

Also, do you want the race names updated to the new AoS names (such as Ogors)? Or add them separately?

I agree. A lot of extra attacks possible.

Part of why I like mandatory round bases (with min size 25mm)

I don't think GW make 20mm rounds do they?

I've updated a few more entries on the spreadsheet.

If anyone else can help out the would be great.

Had a go at Death. Assumed entries in red, if anyone has access to the newly packaged boxes.

I've also listed Hero models on 32 mm bases, as to me it reflects 'best fit' for those more imposing models. But unsure what they are actually packing them in these days.

True thanks need to go to Tim Joss of the Plastic Krak blog (which sadly died with the death of the Old World): http://plastickrak.blogspot.co.nz/2015/07/age-of-sigmar-base-conversion-chart.html

It would be great to get this completed by the time the site launches.

If anyone can help out please do :)

I'd recommend double-checking those Plastic Krak base suggestions with GW's AoS model photos where possible, had a look there now and noticed several of the Ogre entries have different base sizes compared to what GW is using.

I'll see about getting a few more sizes entered after I get my website up here :)

I've started reformatting the base size chart to also include the faction names and new model names.  Have a look at the Order section, where I have done from Devoted of Sigmar to Wanderers based on the AoS app.  You can now filter by faction or WHFB army name, so hopefully it will work for new and old gamers alike

The Order section has now been restructured.  Need to add the base sizes and reformat the other three grand alliances.

You've got Daemonettes on 32mm but in all the pictures from GW so far they've all been on 25mm. And if you look at them on 32mm, they don't fit, the base is much to large for them.

This is great, I recently picked up a Luminark of Hysh and I'm not sure what size to put it on yet. This is a help.

Filled in a few of the empire and dwarf entries I could, can't figure out how to make the numbers red though for assumed ones and I don't want to muck up the spreadsheet so I left my meddling to a minimum.

I adjusted the Steam Tank to a 120x92 rather than a 105x70, I'm currently building a couple and it's impossible to measure to the front of the base because the amount of overhang from the front of the tank. I thought 120x92 would look a little silly but when you sit the model on it, it pretty much matches the length of the tank perfectly.

So can anyone tell me what size base a GW giant should go on?
