Why hello there. Just ordered up some Shieldbash starters and wanted to pose a few questions about basing.

First, do the figs come with bases? If so, what sort? Based on the store pics, they look like beveled 20mm squares. not sure if they are slottas or what.

Second, I see some figs use a different size - is it one different size (seemingly 40mm?) or several sizes?

Finally, anyone have experience playing Shieldbash with figs on 25mm rounds? I know this game has facing rules but would I be much mistaken for assuming the square basing is more to do with Shieldwall compatibility?

Thanks in advance!

Welcome, and let's see if I can answer your questions.

Yes they come with bases and they are mostly 20mm slotted square bases.

For now it is just 20's and 40's

It is mostly for compatibility reasons. We do have a little bit about facing in Bash, mostly for multiple combatants. Rounds would probably work fine as long as you addressed those issues ahead of time with your opponent.

Hope that helps!

Thank you kindly for the quick responses!

Must say, I like the look of the square bases - it's just the bevel/slotta elements that might get jettisoned. Saw someone's pics using what looked like 3MM MDF and that seems right for my guys. Are the figs standing on integrated bases or "balance beams" meant to slot into the bases they come with?

Integral bases.
