There is no set base size for GQ3.  Most people base their ships more for protecting the ship details from handling and easing storage.

G' Day David,


As Captain M indicated, there is no set size for basing your ships.  Just use what is confortable for you.  You will find a number of different samples in the photos of miniatures in different scales in GQ 3.3.  I would add that ODGW offers a nice set of clear acrylic bases with etched bow waves and stern wakes for the popular 1:2400 miniatures.  Thre are a nu,mber of useful tips on preparing and basing your ships in the Commissioning section at the front of the rule book.  I have always found it handy to provide a ship name or ID as a small white label at the stern end of the base.  The white lable blends nicely with the wake while providing you a handy means of ID for the ship.  You can see an example on page 1-8.


Best of luck with launching your fleet...or fleets,
