Size of Bases ?

Postby Jakarn » 13 Apr 2016 15:14

I know it is early to be worried about bases, and the models probably come with bases, but I was thinking of doing something different for this game, I have seen a few games (Zombicide, and Frostgrave) where the gamers have been using clear bases. I also pledged for "Battle Systems™ Urban Apocalypse Terrain"
which I think will be great for this game. The pledge I went for was the city section and mats for the slum sections so I can make a waste land area as well, so having clear bases would look better when the models go between the two areas.

So the reason I want to know now is, if I come across deals on bases or the web store has a sale, if I know the size I can grab them. I have pledged for the " Two player Bundle" (hoping to get some friends interested and do some demos at the LGS) and the "Humanist Rebellion Starter", what size bases do I need for those two ? and I guess the larger creatures for later on ?

That terrain is cool!

All the models from the stuff you've pledged for are on 30mm bases. The medium-sized creatures/frames are on 40mm bases (like the Crusaders and Vampyrs) and the large are on 50mm bases (like the Kodiak and Jormungandr).

The base course or basecourse in pavements is a layer of material in an asphalt roadway, race track, riding arena, or sporting field that is located directly under the surface layer.
If there is a subbase course, the base course is constructed directly above this layer. Otherwise, it is built directly on top of the subgrade. Typical base course thickness ranges from 100 to 150 millimetres (4 to 6 in) and is governed by underlying layer properties. Generally consisting of a specific type of construction aggregate, it is placed by means of attentive spreading and compacting to a minimum of 95% relative compaction, thus providing the stable foundation needed to support either additional layers of aggregates or the placement of an asphalt concrete wearing course which is applied directly on top of the base course.[1][2]

Aggregate base (AB) is typically made of a recipe of mixing different sizes of crushed rock together forming the aggregate which has certain desirable properties. 20 mm or 3/4 inch Aggregate Base, Class 2, is used in roadways and is an aggregate made of a specific recipe of different sizes and quality of rock inclusive of 20 mm (3⁄4 in) to fine dust. An aggregate is normally made from newly quarried rock, or it is sometimes allowed to be made from recycled asphalt concrete and/or Portland cement concrete.
