So although my Dark Angel bulk purchase was a great deal, they did all come on 25mm bases so after painting each batch I will be converting them all onto 32mm bases. Incidentally I feel GW is selling them quite cheaply compared to their other base sets at £3 for 10, is that just me being naive though? Anyway its a price I'm happy to pay, its a shame I was so far into my Black Templars when they introduced the new size as marines look soooo much better on bigger bases, fits their larger aesthetic very well.
So I've re-based my first tactical squad, and man were these guys glued on to their old bases well! I hope its not the same for all of them... Here's some before on a 32mm without basing and some after shots when all done:
The force is growing at pace and I am very excited to get playing with at soon as possible, even as just an allied detachment with my Blood Angels so I can get the feel for them as a force beyond theory-crafting and my (dubious) tactica article.
