Default Flash News: Snikrot Lost on his base!!!

Just bought the new Snikrot model and it seems rediculous that he comes on a terminator size base (40mm???). Come on he is just a Nob upgrade. I know the new rules state on the base that the model comes with but to me his base size is rediculous. The model looks like he is dwarfed by the base and is lost on it.

I think he fits on a 40mm base fine, would look silly on a smaller one.

Too big in my mind, a Nob comes on a 25mm and looks perfect.

I put my converted Snikrot on a 40mm base, and I think he looks fine. I will be adding some weeds that he will be stalking through to take up some of that empty area though, plus water effects.

25mm looks too small a base for Snikrot. Anyway, why complain about base sizes unless you're really such a particular person during gameplay? I say just use it.

I don't know, doesn't look "lost" to me...

Besides, I honestly don't see the problem - he is no IC, so he can't be singled out in CC, and with the rest of the new CC rules, I cannot see a drawback save for some minor movement and placement issues by the bigger base.

Cheers,

Nothing to do with game play just astetics. The Maddok comes on a 25mm and he is the same size.

I've put my new nobz on 40mm bases... they just stand out andm look more menacing that way.

Is the same opinion true of the Kaptin?
While I might think it does seem a bit odd for Snikrot, given his fluff and all, I can't say I'd get bent out of shape over it.

That's because Maddok is a very old model and was built for a slotta base,
