This crazy model comes with a horse base (1"x2").  It just doesn't seem 40K to put him on that rectangular base.  A pic in the codex shows him painted up on what appears to be a 60mm round.  That's the same base as the demon prince or dreadnought.  Any thoughts on  me mounting him on a round base?  Maybe a bike base would be more appropriate.

I think a bike base (with the rounded edges) would best, but if you don't want to do that then look at using a terminator base. Thats what comes with the Khymera for my DE beastmasters unit.

There are threads of this very subject on both Wareer and Dakka.  I believe the consensus was cav base or 40mm round base.

I started to put the hounds on bike bases. I decided to go with the Chaos Warhounds as a proxy for Flesh Hounds. I am not buying finecrap models and Warhounds are pretty inexpensive. I built 20 and planning a red khorne paint scheme. The Warhounds looked pretty small on the bike bases and Flesh Hounds come with the cavarly base.  Bike bases are the same width (25mm) but slightly longer (70mm) than the cavarly or horse base (50mm).

Yeah Thanks.  I found this http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/520251.page#5501632

When I have my mini in front of me, I am going to see how it looks on a 40mm round.  It is larger than the 25mm x 50mm base.  It is definitely longer.  A 40mm seems like it'd be too small that's why I assumed the pic in the codex was a 60mm.

He looks too big on a 40mm round and I don't like him on the cavarly base.  The pic in the codex is a 60mm (dreadnought size) base, which is pretty large for the model.  With a nicely decorated base and some scenery added to it, Karanak would look pretty sweet.  Comments or recommendations?

I haven't mounted it to a base.  I was going to paint it along with the unit of hounds.  Here are some pics with various bases.

40mm round



Cavalry



60mm with the 40mm and cav next to it





for kicks I put it on a bike base too with poster tack or is that bubble gum Smile





I don't like the 40mm round.  I think the 60mm might be too big.  I am considering the bike base or building up the terrain on the 60mm.  What do you guys think?

Here is my unit of hounds primed, based and ready for paint once I decide the base for Karanak.

I would go with the 60mm personally, and add some cool stuff to the base to help highlight he is a character, and to give him some visual flair to be the center of the squad.

I honestly see him on 60mm, the square base, or on the cav bases depending on player preference.. I have never heard anyone complain about any of it.. So if you want him on a square base to match the squad no one will complain.. I know larger events specifically state that demon players can use square bases at events normally.

Yeah if your unit is on cav sq base, put him him on a large square base...like the ogres or demon princes.

I wasn't event thinking about a square base. The princes come with 50mm square, which I have. There is also the rectangular bases (50x75) that the bloodcrushers have that might be a cool option. That also may be too big.

Thanks guys

I went with the cav base because that's the base the model came with. I wimped out. I did add some skulls. Hopefully, I will finish painting some stuff and post pics.
