I am eager to acquire, through purchase, a one Age of Sigmar Slaves to Darkness set. However, I wish to replace the circular bases with their original square counterparts, so I can rank those mofos. You understand? I need to know WHICH SIZE BASE I would need to mount the Chaos Mauraders AND those Chaos Warriors. Not sure if they use the smaller ones or maybe those larger ones one might base orcs on. And then I will conquer the world and you will end up as slaves for my amusement.

YOU WILL TELL ME NOW!

Wow even the Mauraders? I haven’t seen these in person, are the figures bigger than your normal human or is it because of their positions waving their weapons around.

They are big and in a wide stance, probably pretty close to Orcs in size.

Yep, one of the things 6th Edition did was unify Chaos with base sizes. All infantry are on 25mm, Minotaurs and same size units 40mm, Dragons and the like on 50mm.

They didn't do that with Orcs and Goblins, mainly because no Orc would sully himself to join a Gobbo regiment. Lizardmen are also split size, but they have corresponding characters to both infantry types.

Yeah hahaha I remember the cursing of a buddy of mine who had to rebase all of his Chaos Marauders from 20mm to 25mm.

Adrift within the vortex of my imagination.

Chaos Marauders are also loose ranked troops being irregular barbarian infantry, So 25mm bases make sense.

One of the nice things you can do is add mounted models into chaos warrior blocks. for the traditional image of heavily armoured warriors some on foot some mounted all massed together, which has long be a staple of fantasy art. Its as simple as one knight model counts as two chaos warriors on foot.

It may be a good idea to do this because you get lots of knights in the Slaves to Darkness boxsets, and knights are a bitch to rank up. Using excess knights as unit fillers makes good use of them.

It is by tea alone I set my mind in motion. By the juice of the brew my thoughts aquire speed, my mind becomes strained, the strain becomes a warning. It is by tea alone I set my mind in motion.

I think this an outstanding, great idea.

If you ever do so,

Chaos infantry have been on 25mm bases for as long as I remember - since 3rd edition at least. The only exception would be things like goblins, skaven, chaos dwarves, dark elves, etc (back when they were part of the Chaos "mish-mash") and Ungors which appeared in the 6th edition list.

For example, these guys, who are as low-level and scrotey as it gets in a 3rd edition Chaos army:
