    Hi all,
    Just got myself a shasvasti haiduk for my combined army.
    The model comes with both a 25mm and a 40mm base size.
    The model on the front of the package is on the 40mm and it looks better that way but the unit profile shows S2 (which I think means 25mm? - still new to infinity)
    Which is correct?

    thanks

    The Haiduk has the Sapper skill that lets it deploy and enter the Foxhole state, troopers in a Foxhole are S3 (40mm base).

    So either can be used, most people tend to use the 40mm as they spend most of their time in the Foxhole and proxy another S2 model if they start moving the Haiduk around. Some enterprising types even magnetise them so they can be used on either.

    That is an option, but my experience using Sappers as a FRRM player is that they don't tend to move around much, and are generally back in their foxhole by the end of your turn :)

    Another option is to make a scenic 40mm base with a 25mm hole you put the smaller base into.

    The Haiduk is pretty easy to magnetize and make it work. I still haven't painted mine yet (waiting on Defiance to crank out Shas for weeks), but it's assembled.
