This is causing some serious confusion. It was spelled out in the FAQ but here is a sticky for people who didn't see it -

For all official Soda Pop events Ekhis will be allowed on a 40 or a 50mm base for those of you who prefer it that way.

I think I was the first person tripped up on this. I actually expected it to be the librarian who had the smaller base so I am very happy it was clarified.

Now if only there was some method of communicating this to the group who bought it and may not come to this forum...something like an email.

Actually a KS update would reach a lot more people - especially those newer players who might not be active on the forums...now whos responsibility would that be CMoN or SPM...?

Now to figure out how to get Ekhis on a 40mm base with out looking silly...? As the model barely fits on a 50mm base.

Ekhis used to come with a 50mm base. I've had him painted up for a few years now

Ehkis is not a great fit on 40mm in his stance but you can squeeze him on there. I still suspect the change was made to cover for a packaging mistake with the starter.

I think they need to fix the issue by allowing either base option to be played. I have mine on a 50mm base I had around the house.. not gonna go changing it now. If I have to then the incert I used will get trimmed down and really over hang that small base to mess with tournament judges. ;)

So is it still size 40 base? I'm wanting to put my fiancé Ekhis on base so I can paint it.

They need to change the cards in the download section, Ekhis is still listed as a 50 in there

A few years ago, I got the metal Princess Malya, which at that time came with a 50mm base. I'll use that base for my Ekhis.

I can certainly see why SPM would rather change the stat for the figure rather than deal with the expense and hassle of sending out hundreds of thousands of replacement bases. But I'm going to put my minis on the base that fits best. I'm not to fussed about tournament play, and could always choose another faction or squad build anyway if it was a big deal.

SInce the old metal Ekhis came with a 50mm base and that's what's printed on the card, allowing both would be the most practical and sensible solution.

Did they sell hundreds of thousands? That explains the slow packing.

Hundreds of thousands of dollars, thousands of backers, easily confused. Certainly seems like packing time for hundreds of thousands :lol:

I disagree, I think they need to have a solid answer and stick to it, I don't like the idea of allowing both from a design perspective. I don't think they can please everyone, but I respect them more for just coming out and making a ruling.

Book says Ekhis is on a 50mm. Card says he's on a 50mm. Keep him on a 50mm. He looks better on a 50mm base. I'm sure people can find an extra 50mm base laying around somewhere. Or just send one out to those who want an official RK purple 50mm base or need one. Simple.
