Sort of getting back in to 40K after a hiatus.

Notice the new Primaris come on bigger bases as well as heroes on even bigger and Marneus on much bigger base.

I did look at the guide on Dakka but even that seems out of date and on the GW website it looks like the GSC magus is now on a 32mm but doesn’t specify, so that site has holes in clarification.

Guide on Dakka for ref https://www.dakkadakka.com/wiki/en/Basing_Guidelines_for_Warhammer_40,000

Anyway in a nutshell I suppose what I want to ask is, is there a definitive online resource with all the base sizes for every army?

Thx Chimaera.

In general:
GEQ - 25mm
GEQ characters - 32mm
MEQ - 32mm
MEQ characters - 40mm

Though I'm sure there are exceptions, and when it comes to super special characters I don't think there really is a standard at all. Probably the best online resource is to go the the GW web store and check which bases are included with the kits for a sample of troops, elites, HQ etc. for the army in question.
