If these will sell big time, it could maybe finance some plastic 20x20 bases?

That is definitely an option. We've also considered bases of the same dimensions, but with a different number of holes.

A strip with 3 almost evenly spaced holes might be an option as well. There's a lot of bigger stuff like ogryns for instance that fitting 5 on a base looks (even more) silly.

Square bases are also perfect for BFG, making them a lot more versatile in usage.

That they should be mounted on 20x20mm bases.

I prefer the rectangle or round bases too, but apparently these are the rules.

Fair enough, but the square bases are still something to consider for production later on.

Torpedo's and missile spreads on strip bases anything else is just silly, IMHO.

Yeah but the point malika and myself are making is that there's a market for those new crap shapes, silly and dumb as they are [sticks fingers in ears - NAANNANA]
