Yes. Harpies are on 20mm square bases.

If you're ever in doubt on base size, just refer to the GW site. Look up the unit in question and it tells you what size bases they come with. That's what you should use.

I'm half-expecting something on base sizes in 8th edition rules, either saying "use the minimum base size suggested, but anything bigger is fine" or having a strict base size chart.

so for now use 20mm bases, but 25mm bases could be used too probably. 20mm is more advantageous right now since you get more models in base contact that way ;P

and seeing they are the same as the delves ones, they should be on 20mm bases

Oh god, gobbos on 50 mm bases. The agony.

They have no model so 20mm or 25mm will do just fine, DE harpies arn't Beast harpies.

If in doubt follow GW's own answer "be reasonable"

GW would disagree with you. Check under Warhammer Armies>Beastmen>Speical Units and you will find harpies, and they are the exact same harpy models found under the dark elf army.

Damn, they must have recently added those, they wern't there at the start :P

And on a side note that is utter laziness, they don't look anything like what should be in a Beast army!
In the novel "Defenders of the forrest" they described them as basically Gors with wings, which fit nicely.

Well they're super easy to convert. Get some plastic ungors and some tyranid Gargoyle wings. A small bit of cutting and glue later, you have harpies.

I've been expecting that with every new edition, I think you're going to be disapointed :p

GWs own website even mentioned a similar conversion involving the plastic daemonettes. Turns out it's cheaper, by a decent amount, to make plastic harpies yourself than to use the metal ones which break if you look at the funny.

My Hellcannon is mounted on a 100x100mm base :shifty:

But that's just because it looks daft on a chariot base.
