8th Edition base sizes

By | 24th May 2017

I saw this crop up in the comments yesterday here and elsewhere so our resident spy, Dessie, went back in for a closer look. Armed with charm, ego and a measuring tape they took these pics:

48mm for the Death Guard lord in termintor armour.

38mm for the Primaris Captain in fancy new armour.

Well that puts that question to rest at least. Four more weeks!

  • Now you’re just being silly!

    • Always ultra serious on this blog.

  • So, nominal 50mm and 40mm respectively, I assume, rather than some slightly different new standard.

    • Yeah not sure why they read as slightly smaller.

      • They’ve always been a little off. A buddy of mine was making his own bases a while ago, and wanted to be sure that they were the right size, so he measured a bunch super carefully, and found that there’s actually a couple of mm of variation in the actual sizes of a given nominal base size. I really have no idea how that might end up happening, but apparently it’s the case.

    Are the new Plague Marines snap-fit as well?

    • Not 100% sure to be honest.
