Hi all,

Just a simple question I need an answer to; do the current Space Marine Bikes and Attack Bike boxes come with the correct bases for the models?

I've never seen a base included with the attack bikes. I don't think they get one.

I always assumed the only reason the bikes had bases was to stop them falling over, I recall that in the distant past you did not get a base with them? I can never remember getting a base with my metal bikes or attack bike?

Correct, in the olden days they came with no bases at all, in part because there was no suitable base. And yes, they fell over a lot :)

Attack bikes still have no base, which is a bit inconsistent visually, although they don't have the falling-over problem. Some players put them on larger round bases, which looks nice but can cause occasional rules arguments re BtB contact.

Thanks guys, just wanted to know if I should order some bases with my Bikes, and it seems I will need to get some 40-60mm ones for the Attack Bikes.

Attack bikes fit on 60mm bases ok.

Wait, a few short years ago is the distant past/olden days? How old are you people?

I think bikes look good on bases, best if the whole army sticks to.

They fit even better on 65x90 "pill" bases. No overhang then.
