    It's not that big. It's not as small as a chariot either. It's a bizarre in between size. I still have Neferata on one. I'll see about measuring it when I get home.

    I believe it's 50x75. Same size as giants, demi-gryff cav, and others.

    I am pretty sure they came with a 60x100mm base. That is what we had in mind when designing the Great Monstrous Reverent for 9th Age.

    I think that's right. That matches my measurements.

    Many thanks for taking the time to help me people, ok that's going to be a hard one to find on eBay I guess it will be easier to make my own one out of mdf!

    Or maybe get a normal chariot base, cut in half and fill the missing 1cm. Probably more trouble than building one from scratch, but you'll get the standard base sides easily out of it ;)

    Yeah, it's the 60mm x 100mm, same as the Hell Pit Abomination and the Screaming Bell. When making one, the Easiest thing to do might be to take a bunch of 20mm squares, glue them to a piece of styrene card in a 3-wide by 5-deep layout. Trim off the excess card fill the gaps between the bases with putty. This will give you the same bevel as the other GW bases. Then, use a sanding stick to sand the edges so the base plastic and putty is smooth and uniform.
