I think 10 for £29 is the very cheapest you can expect. 10 for £35 is more likely.

It's clear that they don't. We'll be lucky if we can swap arms within the one box. I guarantee you you can't swap bits with any other kit.

Lootas and burnas are rather closely fit to the ork boy torso, I'm fairly sure they won't match - you already need to be careful to not use the ork torso with the spikey metal bar between the shoulders for those models, because that bar makes it impossible to properly attach the deff gun or burna backpack.

If you're lucky, you could probably fit them on warbikes if you feel inclined.

I think it really depends if they keep the third sprue for nob gear and customizations. If they don't (and I don't think they will), Necron Warriors at 29 GBP feel like a good precedent.

Part of me is like feth, new Boyz, do I sell the old ones rather than have to rebase eighty to one hundred models on 32s.

However I really like the look of them standing more upright.

Don't rebase anything, buy the cheapest adapter rings (25mm to 32mm) you can find.

As reluctant as I am to risk opening *this* whole can of worms again, and of course this is anecdotal/down to personal preference but I tried both approaches when I did my Boyz and actually found it a lot easier and neater to straight-up rebase rather than mess about with adapter rings.

I don't think so, they seem to be the same size as after the 8th edition repackaging. But with new models available you get yet another round of the old "metal terminators" game again where people think up all kind of awesome benefits that smaller bases have and then throw a fit because they convinced themselves that playing old models is modelling for advantage.

You only lose a foot if you care about saving the old base.

Oh I just do what I did for the Necrons, and other ones I've done previously... clip the sides of the base, snap the clips off, sand down/trim the underside of the old base with model still attached so its smooth, and then glue onto new base, rebasing a little sand if required (Usually is) between the edge of the old base and the new one its stuck to.

Also, mentioning it as I'd guess its likely the new Orks are on 32s. (Checks the Tanith pic, and yep clearly are on 32s)

Ask any Age of Sigmar player who went through rebasing. The trick is to not remove model from the base but remove the base from the model instead.

I find the trick is to cut the base to the thin layer under the feet, glue onto new base and once you base it (texture paint is great) the height change is basicallyunnoticeable.

Of course that is my solution is the plastic glued base has made break it off otherwise impossible without further damage

Honestly the current ones overhang 25s so much I’ve been thinking about rebasing them all anyway. They always did look a bit silly like that.

I rebased my Stormboyz yoinks ago to 32, just so they were more stable... and I had planned to do the same to my Loota's but never got around to it as they look really silly with their huge figure and gun footprint. I am regretting moving my Nobz down to 32s from their original 40mm bases mind, as I'll probably move them back up if the Boyz are all on 32.

The only good thing is I have tons of 32s if I do decide to do so, I went through a stage of grabbing a pack when I did GW orders and by placing all Blood Bowl big guys on 40mm, got quite a few from there as well.

Hmmm I have to say I'm glad I already have all the various Boyz I'll ever need. The new ones are nice, but I like the consistency of my older models.


I'm really not a fan of the increased base sizes though, as I mention whenever it comes up. I think it's one of the most obnoxious things GW has ever done along with the move to bigger scaled miniatures.

On a side note, I had half an hour this morning, so threw up this quick guide of what I've been doing for a number of years. (Since 32mm came in and I started rebasing models for look, quite a lot of which are now correctly based)

Showing what I mean seems better than trying to explain it.

There are also hard plastic 25 to 32 mm adapter rings which are quite good, here is a tutorial: https://taleofpainters.com/2016/08/review-tabletop-adapters-32mm-base/

But it's still an effort, as you need to fill the seams with liquid greenstuff for a smooth result.

They don't look like much less work than just trimming the old base off and gluing down to a new one.

Because you're assuming that the old bases are unpainted. Painting like 200-300 new bases just to put orks on 32mm instead of 25mm, like I would have to do if I go down that path, is a huge amount of work. That's why I suggest buying the adapters as an alternative, they're basically the same cost than cheap bases but no effort to update the models.
