What is the size of the circular bases that Chronoscope minis are mounted on?

I'm thinking of using several of the pistol wielding Chronoscope minis for proxies of Warmachine's Black 13th Strike Team. Not that those minis are awful or anything... but I like the ones I've picked out of Chronoscope better :D And it'd be a whole dollar cheaper!!!

But if the bases aren't 30mm then I'm out of luck.

They're the standard 1" circles that many companies use-like Privateer Press.

Just checked and yes, they are 30mm.

30mm != 1"

Since you said 30mm second, do you mean the base is 30mm and not 1"?

By my ruler, Privateer’s “30mm” bases are actually 29mm. That translates to just about an inch and a quarter. If Chronoscope is 1” it’s quite close. Couldn’t bring it to Gen Con but I bet I can get away with it at the local shop! And since my Ironclad is mounted on a home-made cardboard cutout (yay buying second hand without all the parts…) and nobody complains… I think I’m golden!

They are 30mm. My D&D group happens to use them to represent medium creatures which take up a 1" square, so that's how I think of them. Sorry for the confusion.
