Trolls go on 40mm square bases. Standard small monster base.

I actually have a base size question that's not on the sticky... What size bases would mutants use? Would they be considered human for the purposes of basing (ie 20mm)? Or would they be 25mm like Possessed?

Aren't Mutants in the original Starter box for Posessed and aren't they nothing but humans with a third eye, arm or a bad skin tone?

I think you can't get a better excuse to use the base you like best instead of the base you should use than when doing a Mutant or Posessed, though.

Actually, the Possessed box has no mutants. Sad In fact, I've never seen an actual Mordheim Mutant model, just the 2 Possessed models.

Fair enough, I was planning on using a 20mm base for the marauder, but he's somewhat large so a 25mm might be in order. I'll see what works. Smile

Marauders definately go with 25mm bases.

Mutants... I believe they were meant to be normal humans.

Check this unreleased Mordheim Mutant model e.g.:

IMHO it doesn't really matter which bases one uses, as long as it's believable Cool

and when in doubt i always use a bigger base, so no one complains lol!

It's not the size of the base that matters but how you use it. Very Happy
