@Anon - The rules specify the minimum sized base. I will add the 75mm size as an option for them.
@DP9; I do agree with Benjamin's suggestion, I would greatly appreciate that option.
@ Anon. The rules are still Beta so we can get that fixed up. :-)
If the plastic mounts are like the current resin and metal mounts, physically they should be able to stand on their own just fine. Especially in plastic, all you'd really be doing is preventing the need to be extra thorough on your sealant job for the feat, to prevent accidentally chipping your paint. :)
I'm a bit vexed, though. At the moment, the beta rules specify that the standard base size for those models is 60mm as striders, but they don't really fit on that size base.
@ David. The Caprice Mounts don't need any bases that stand fine on their four legs.
@ Benjamin. MDF bases are still pretty expensive, our supplier of the 25 mm slotted hex bases and 40 mm round plastic bases also makes a 30 mm round plastic base. We can check on the cost and maybe offer it as an option after the Kickstarter ends. But the feet of most of the gears that we planned to fit on the slotted hex bases will have tabs on their bottoms to fit into the slots, that you would need to cut off to put them on a round base.
Any chance of seeing an add-on pack with enough round MDF bases for the entire core pledge? I've never been a fan of hex bases, and I'm sure I'm not the only one.
Do we need the bases, or can we just let them stand on their own?
