Yep, regular 30mm round base, but Mierce have said when they changed the bases, if you drop them an e-mail and let them know the models you've got, they'll get the new ones their meant to be on out to you :)

Re: 499 gold Ysians vs Fomoraic.

@Malachi - from watching the demo's yesterday, if you can keep your bow drunes left to the back and un-troubled they can make a real mess of things over the course of a battle- 2 turns and they almost pin cushioned Rob's Gabrax Tain, I'll definitely be building another 5 soon :)
