So I bought a Charontid on Weds, took him home opened him up and looked at the pieces of model, all seem to be correct, no problems here. Get base out of blister, Oh? how is the extension piece for a 25mm base, which is cast onto the slotta tab and has the Charontids foot as part of it supposed to work with a 40mm base.
Why the heck would they change the base size and not alter the model so it can actually go on that base, Yeah I can file it for an hour or so until it is level with the tab top or cut the tab off & bend the model so that it'll work with the full height base piece. But for 11.25 I shouldn't have to, and the photo on the front should represent what is in the package.
Putting rocks and other detritus on the casting is irritating at the best of times as morer often than not it will not match with the basing of the rest of an army, but putting them on so that the model won't fit on its regulation/supplied base should never happen.
