Default Heavy Weapon platform.

Hey guys.

Well i have a heavy weapon team (vostroyan hevy bolter team) that is sitting there unbuilt, not even touched. So i want to build them and use them in my fledgling gaurd army. But my only problem is that i lost the large base. Now im too lazy to go out and buy one, so i was wondering if it is legal to do this:

Put the loader on a small normal base
And put the Heavy weapon and the firer on a Terminator size base.

Is this legal???

Not really. Under the new Codex, a Guard Heavy Weapons Team is now a single model with two wounds (despite representing two men) and thus needs to be mounted upon a single base.

yep, i agree with this, the rules have always been that you can freely mount your models on a larger base, but it must be on a base at least as large as the one it was sold with, that's what caused all teh problems with rules lawyers and terminators when they changed the base size.

although, you have hit on a personal bugbear of mine, that it doesn't seem possible to buy bags of large bases, last time i tried i ended up with a bag of flat ones, which weren't quite the right size.

60mm diameter round bases, closed holes - this is precisely what an Imperial Guard Heavy Weapons Team is based on.

You can also get 60mm bases, albeit only one per pack, in the Round Bases Set.

The thinner bases are 60mm Titan Bases, originally for use by Titans in Epic.
