Hey guys,

I'm going to buy Neferata and I want to put her on a round base, which size would fit nicely?

I was looking to buy a nice scenic 120x90mm oval base, would that fit the model's footprint?

Thanks in advance!

I believe the base she comes on normally is 60mm by 100mm, although it is honestly a bit tight, so 90 x 120 should be a good size for her.

That said, most of the mortarch model is way up above the base. There are ghosty trails, but they don't really 'fill in' the base so much, so you might want to put some work into the scenery. Additionally, the tail that the abyssal terror balances on is somewhat thin and can be a bit wobbly, so some extra scenery in the basing, maybe a withered tree or egyptian style obelisk, can provide extra contact points to help support the model. I modeled my arkhan to be toppling a stature of Morr. It did involve some conversion work re-posing claws and adjusting the ghosties to fit, but the result is much more secure and stable, while still maintaining the pose and sense of motion, imo.

The tall obelisk from the arcane ruins kit could also be cut to perform a similar function, and might look a bit more egyptiony to fit with Neferata's theme a bit better.

The model could easily fit a 60mm round base. The model is big, but the contact with the base is small. So anything bigger will be more than enough. And I agree about adding support for the model, see Arkhan bellow:D
