You could probably go with 60x30mm bases - these have a good area to arrange figures nicely.

Despite having 100s of warmaster based figures I would avoid 40x20mm bases if you would like nice looking bases - what looks good on 40x20mm bases is them crammed full of figures, which the Warmaster strips do very nicely, and then several of these together to make a unit. A few single 40x20mm bases will look a little lonely.

Yes, good points.

60x30 bases would work on a 4x3 feet table, if I follow the 18x12 base width recommendation I've seen in the preview of the rulebook.

Thank you,

My book arrived this morning, thanks Leon!

Looks very good on my first read through, going over the rules
properly now and my appetite is thoroughly whetted.

When will the army packs be available?

Races beyond the initial 12 in the rules will be added in a supplement further down the line I'd expect.  Steve's done a lot of work already on more army lists, so it's in the works.

As for more releases, the Undead are being moulded at the moment, so within the next fortnight for those.  Then the High Elves arrived at Pendraken HQ yesterday, so those will be going into the moulding queue next.

havent read through the rules but im curious as to how the game plays is it large scale? or is a bit more skirmisher in a nature? the pictures make it seems smaller scale but other pictures make it look masive

fred.

There are relatively few stands in a 500 point game (around 10) but each stand has a lot of figures. It plays more like a battle than a skirmish.

And you can scale up to get more bases in a larger game quite easily.

You could use another list with ratmen figures...goblins seem a good fit.
