I bought mine on ebay, and a base was not provided. There's an unfortunate lack of BC pictures in the armybook, but the two images that are included seem to show the coach itself on a 50mm x 100mm base, and the horses on their own 50mm x 50mm base.

It that correct? So when you buy a BC does it come with a chariot base AND a monster base?

No, it comes on it's own chariot base, and then the two horses each have their own 50mm x 25mm cav base per model. I ended up greenstuffing the whole mess together.

Actually after putting it all together you end up with 50X150. The chariot fills a 50X100 and adding the horses puts another 50mm on to the length.

i didn't get a base with mine either. i used a corpse cart chariot base for the coach itself, put each horse on their own cavalry base, and the bases just sit against each other.

that does not matter as the propper base size is 50x125.

however, you always may field it on the base it was sold with, but there are tournaments that want to see your giant on 50x75 (as well as dragons and wyverns).

I thought common practice was to never trust the non-English GW websites, since they tend to make up their own rules/interpretations, sometimes in contradiction to other pre-existing rules.

At any rate, I'd never use a base size that isn't even manufactured by GW.
