"Cry 'Havoc!', and let slip the dogs of war".
What to do when $10 / £6 per model seems a little excessive for a unit of Flesh Hounds of Khorne? GW's own Dire Wolves costs just over a quarter of the above price. Even if you do buy the bases from GW too, you're still saving more than fifty per cent.
I've had ten of these assembled and primed for quite a while now, but was waiting on ten more that Tom-Erik brough around when we managed to get a game in a while ago.
With all twenty 'ready to go', I overheard somewhere that they went on 50mm bases now... A quick check on GW's web store confirmed it. Back to square one!
Of course, GW tells us we can use whatever bases we feel are appropriate... I could no longer get past how small the 40mm bases suddenly looked.
After a quick and fruitless round of GW's web store and a number of bits-stores later, I found a seller on eBay who had exactly what I wanted - at far less than the aforementioned web stores wanted.
