PostSubject: Snotling Bases   Thu 23 Apr 2009 - 16:45

So what's the word on basing individual Snotlings for the Night Goblin warband? The 20mm bases seem too big for such tiny models so I was thinking of just modeling some green stuff into smaller bases for them. I hear base size has an effect on gameplay so I'm wondering if there is any precedent on this issue?.

I guess these problems would disappear if I just used the swarm base they came with Razz

I would think 20mm bases would be alright for snotlings. They're used for giant rats, single nurglings, and some tiny familiars without any trouble. You could add extra detail to the base if it looks too empty.

I'm not sure how playable a smaller base would be. I'd at least talk it over with your group before you try anything smaller than 20mm.

How about putting three on one 20 mm base and let them aways stay in a group... you could give them D3 attacks, that would make them swell and quite fun to play.

POPMOUTH...that is a great idea. The swarm idea but not overpowering.

Aesthetically, I'd put one on a 20mm base. It'd highlight their tetchiness rather superbly, snotlings are tiny, it's theri defining charecteristic.

Rules wise, Popmouth's idea is brilliant!

I like the 3 on one 20mm base better than the 5-6+ on one 40mm idea. I chose to stick with what the original list had, individual bases, when drafting my Night Goblin Warband. It is still very much a work in progress though...

With the small scale of Mordheim, I like the idea of individually based snotlings. Nurglings are individually based for CoC, and I think anyone who has played with or against them can vouch that they're quite fun used in this way.
