The old 6cm coherency rules are not in effect. You can place all you
units within 30cm of your deachment HQ. So even though your models (and
mine for that matter) have different sized bases, you can pack them
together as tightly or as loosely as you want. Thus the _real_ difference
in basing is negligible. Trust me I've played 5 or so games of E40k and
base size doesn't matter when compared to spacing.
