Painting up a army for someone and they were wanting some Long Fangs in it. Do I need to put them on the larger Dev bases? And as far as that goes does every Hvy weapons marine need to be on a 32mm base?

Sorry meant to put into 40K rules. Please move. Thank you.

Whatever you want, or in the case of the Long Fangs, whatever your client wants.

If you have the new devs though, some of the legs do not fit on 25mm bases anymore.

To be safe, and to keep from having to do a future repaint for free, I'm thinking I'm going to gently insist he acquire some 32mm bases. He feels quite entitled and doesn't know the rules to the game yet. He could see this as an 'artistic mistake' if 32mm becomes standard or if he is challenged by someone at the FLGS about the issue.

Well, 32mm bases seem to be turning into the norm. You should perhaps point this out to your client, that this is the direction things are going for Space Marines. And then let him decide.

If he wants to go for 25mm and changes his mind there are these: 25mm to 32mm converters.

I'm using 30mm bases, as I can get them cheaper and they aren't as thick/tall as GW's 32mm ones. Look better that way.
