Basing vehicles is growing on me. Similar to the new buggies.

I wonder if you tried to do the same. If so, which choices did you make for the trukk and the battlewagon? 150mm and 170mm? Do they fit well?

My sin is not having a standard ork vehicle, so I can't try.

A GW battlewagon with a deff rolla is 8 inches 200mm. THe base would be huge.

I bought on ebay a 225×175mm for the killtank, so I guess that would be the one.

Any idea about the trukk? 170 or 150?

The trukk fits on the same base as the new ork vehicles. 150 mm. 170 would be too big IMO, but it may be personal preference.

Here in Australia we have a big hardware chain that also sells some craft stuff. For quite a while now I've been buying little round and oval things made out of what appears to be MDF and putting my vehicles on them. I think they're probably intended to be painted up and used for coasters and such like. I've never bothered to measure them though.

I would really appreciate you doing so and uploading some pics :)))

Happy to.  In the meantime, there's a pic in my thread in the Mek's of a little Squiggoth  that I put on such a base.

My image host is not playing the game right now. They're 90mm (approx 3.5 inches) diameter. I took a photo of the label which shows the manufacturer - kaiserwood - details. I'll try and upload again tonight or tomorrow.

I just re-read your original post and i see you're looking for bases for big vehicles. These would be too small, they're better for buggies and killer kanz. In the same section at the same shop I've got some other round wooden things which I've used for a base for a Stompa. I'll measure that up too, although i suspect it's gonna be too big.

Yes. I am looking forward seeing how the 150 or 170 or whatever fits better to the official GW models.

Here is a photo comparison:  GW battlwagon, trukk on 170mm base, and Ork Snazzwagon on 150. The trukk fits better on the 170, actually.

That is what I wanted to see! Great. So the 170mm for trukks it is. I found on ebay a seller that offers MDFs bases of 225mm. I bought a pair among other dimensions. Once I receive them I will share some images.

The new buggies are kind of touchy, IMO. 

Lots of easy to break-off pieces. I based them to make handling them easier and to make transporting them safer. None of my trukks or BWs are based. The rectangular outline makes measuring to and from them easier, so range is never a issue in a game. 

My original GW plastic BW is based just because the plastic is brittle with age and it breaks easily.

Put brazing rod axles on mine when I built it :blush years ago - never had a problem with it.

yes, I have reinforced the axles with brass rod. The plastic on the wheels axle bit has deteriorated, glue would not hold. The base acts to reinforce the wheel in case someone picks it up by the wheels (some kid did that once, picking it up off the table w/o asking. May he always fail leadership tests).

Sounds like the sort of thing that some GS reinforcement would sort out - and it makes it look orkier :D

This is the original GW battlewagon. The rule was it could carry as many models as you could fit in it. I added the big shootas, obviously from long ago.
