The standard 25mm round base. Why do you ask?

Really, bases can be any reasonable size, provided that they are at least as large as the default base provided with the model. I personally use 40mm bases for my stealths, and 60mm bases for my Crisis suits.

You can give a model any sized base you want, as said: as long as it's not smaller than the base that came with it.
According to my Local GW, you could have a base that is 12" x 12", but the downside it that more units can attack you, and you would only need TLos to one part of the base to shoot at the actual model, which could be out of sight.

Exactly as people have said, though TLOS is to any part of the body, so having a large base won't increase its vunerability to shooting.

I was told at GW that it was any part of the base.
Either way, I don't see the point of having a huge base.

Fair do's, FYI, page 16 of the rulebook:

"LoS must be traced from the eyes of the firing model to any part of the body of at lest one of the models in the target unit (for body we mean head,torso,legs and arms)."
