I also use round bases in fantasy for my current Daemon army.

Daemonprince: Be'lakor model stands on 40mm base and fits on square base.

"Lesser" Daemons: are on movement trays anyway so round doesnt have much impact vs square.

Seekers: are on old square bike bases again for both systems no real problem.

There is an easy solution to this and this is what I did with my daemons bases. I mounted my models on washers and then put magnets in the base so I can switch between the square and round bases. Doesn't take long at all and is very easy to do. I can put some pics up if anyone wants them.

seriously, the round fit onto the movement trays, i really dont care if people use round bases against me in fantasy, unless their skirmishers, because the move tray doesnt change. and in 40k id rather not have square bases because it does affect blasts a bit. so circle is the better choice imo becasue it fits in the same move trays as square, and in 40k their wont be any problems.

i'd just suggest that if the squares are being used in 40K that the units footprint is the same.

major b* fest was happening at a local tourny when a fellow was using two squads of 6 juggers with hearalds. they were on the squares. the rounds are supposed to be much bigger. the over competitive whiners didn't start complaining until the dude was wreaking shop on a guard parking lot. the TO gave him the ok at the start of the day or he would have used a different army. i got a chance to talk to him and got some painting tips :D

talking with the TO it did effect his softscores and the TO had to massage the idiocy as each of the twits gave him zeros. (they were each tabled) he finished 4th of 50. (i was 30th with my marines)

40k rulebook states that you must use the bases that come with the models so technically mounting everything on the squares for 40k is perfectly legal. So really they can complain all they want but he was following the rules.

That being said the square bases for the bigger stuff are smaller than the round bases so there is a slight issue there. I'm currently in the process of converting my daemons army and I'm thinking of just taking all my bigger stuff of the circles and putting them onto squares and gluing square bases to the bottom of my infantry. 40k Daemons isn't exactly the greatest codex especially with the popularity of Grey Knights at the moment so I figure I'll learn Fantasy and use them exlusively for that from now on.

Plus I can save a tonne of money learning fantasy by having an almost fully painted army ready to go. :D

they do come with both bases because the army is used in both 40k and fantasy. when every other army in the game system has a base type and your using the other that's more than just being a little rude. :D and unfortunately is taken that way by the competitive crowd. i just want to play games.

using the GF9 and LOTR trays are an awesome idea and may stop me tediously magnetizing minis to bases. (yes i also intend to play both games if i can manage it.) it makes the 5 x 3 foot print a little larger ... actually looking for the trays the LOTR one would make it so i'd have to go 6 x 4 and i couldn't find the GF9 ones....

i may also just have to go with plan B, magnetize the characters, and rare/elites and buy a selection of troops for both games. fortunately for the special/fast cavalry bases can still be the rectangles, if not i know many biker armies owners that would be :cry: . i have flight stands for the heralds and seekers on both round and square. for my big metal Daemons i'm just going to magnetize the squares to the round bases and call it done.

I personally don't care what shape of base your model come on, as long as it doesn't prevent us fron playing, or give you an unfair advantage.

Square bases are not an unfair advantage imo.

Just doin some math, to some get a clear picture about the difference is size.

Round 60 mm (64 to be precise) is 321,5 mm² (Pi x 32 x 32)
Square 50 mm is 250 mm² (50x50)

That is some bigger difference in size than i expected.
