they use the new rounded edge calvary bases. Sadly, there is like a million base types thanks to AoS. They are the skinnier long ones. You could probably use the more oval ones, I honestly dont think at this point that base exact size is super important, just that it roughly fits the outline of the model.

example of silliness of bases, ie why it doesn't matter any more
1. old bloodthirster is still legal, even tho it sits on a 60mm base. The new thirster sits on a 120mm oval base.
2. Nobs still come with 25mm bases, even tho physically they are double the size of the 32mm new sized marines.
3. Fleshhounds. What base do they come on? Gw originally released them on fantasy flat end Calvary bases. Then they got 40mm medium round bases. In the daemonkin book, they are portrayed with 50mm centurion bases.

=basically that as long as its not modelling for advantage, put any of the million base sizes gw provides, based on preference and relative size.

Ya.. for sure. "close'ish" works.

Man.. the old metal Chaos Daemon prince came on a 40mm base didnt it? .. and his feet were all hanging over the edges. Back then.. because the princes were pretty strong, people would get mad if you had a bigger base. Not around here.. but go to.Calgary or something and it was a fight.
