What size bases do fell bats go on?

There size would dictate a monster base but their unit strength looks like they should be on large infantry bases...

Anyone care to shed some light on this?

40mm monster bases I think.

Yes, 40mm square bases and Unit Strength 1. :)

It's a rule of thumb, but the system goes, I believe:
If flyer wounds = 1 => Standard Infantry base
If flyer wounds = 2 => Monster base
If flyer described as Flying Cavalry => Follow instructions

Considering that nowhere in any writing (to my knowledge) does it even specify what size bases regular infantry go upon, you won't get a better system than that...

So, judging by page 7, what size base does an Orc Boy go on- 20mm, 25mm or 40mm? Can it be any? Is it up to the player? I think you'll find that it does not actually SPECIFY it, as my post says :rolleyes:

Hmm. This is a real problem as the *provided* bases are 25mm for Orcs, 40mm for flyers.
It does seem to make sense that a US1 should be on a standard infantry base.
I wonder how many players will switch from the bases provided to the base which is commensurate with the US. I doubt whether any player would accept Orc boyz on a 20mm base.

Yes, that's very true- I just think GW should explicitly specify these things. After all, not too long ago Fell Bats were provided on hexagonal bases- good luck getting into a tourney with them these days :D

Actually, they have done that...

Brilliant! Now how many times does a picture of a War Hydra appear in the new rulebook on the wrong sized base... tut tut :)
