Like many I imagine, I am trying to pull double duty on my models. I have the old WHFB
square bases ( which I may rebase on circles) for AoS
, but I also want them to be able to go movement trays for KoW
I have looked into this a lot. It will be quite a project and it seems like I am trying to get a round peg in a square hole.
I have some KoW
Movement trays which rank up nicely for my square bases, but of course wont work with AoS
rounds. Given AoS
hasn't officially embraced round bases (though I imagine it will at some point) i have yet to covert over.
I have found circle movement trays, but they seem to be too large for the Footprint for KoW
, though the meet the MMC.
These look good, but are too large for the KoW
. The 5x2 25mm round tray is actually 133x62, which is larger than both the 100x40mm proper and 125x50mm slightly larger acceptable footprints for KoW
For example: Greatswords from old WHFB
Empire are on 20mm squares Equivalent to AoS
Free People 25mm rounds Equivalent to Kingdoms of man Berserkers on 100x80mm. I need to put them on 25mm round bases for AoS
which would be equivalent to something like the old Chaos Warrior Base size. 10 of these guys go in a troop, which is 5x2, so that would be 125x50 if they were bumped up next to each other in a perfect world. The issue is that is TOO Large per KoW
basing guide, as they are supposed to be on the 100x80mm. Is there a specific requirement on what Infantry go on tehe 100x40 vs the 125x50? If so where can it be found? if not, are there standard guidelines per Tourney rules?
If I went by Minimum Model Count I might be able to squeeze 8 on movement tray if the circles overlapped enough. 4 bumped up next to each other is 100m wide exactly, but it needs to be 40mm deep, instead of 50, so i have to overlap a bit. You can see the delimma.
My other thought is just to base the AoS
rounds, and then just put magnets in the models and cut out rectangle metal sheets for the appropriate foot print. Won't look cool in KoW
, but might work.
Does anyone have success with this? How did you do it?
What do people use for this?
