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 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.

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.
