Good resource, and I heartily support trying to standardize base sizing. If you want to measure from bases (and why wouldn't you ;)) then they certainly matter!

Here are my shots at the missing ones:

Grot Wolf Chariots - 105x70mm oval
Snotling Pump Wagons - 105x70mm oval
Snotlings - 40mm round? (swarms are 40mm in 40k)

Butcher with Great Cauldron - 105x70mm oval
Grot Scraplauncher - 120x92mm oval
Ironblaster - 120x92mm oval

Grot Warboss on Great Cave Squig - 40mm round
Grot Warboss with Giant Cave Squig - 50mm round? (depending on model size)

Greasus Goldtooth - 120x92mm or 105x70mm oval? (depending on model size)
Skrag the Slaughterer - 105x70mm oval

Grom the Paunch - 120x92mm oval
Skarsnik, Warlord of the Eight Peaks - 60mm round? (ala Mighty Lord multi-base)
Arachnarok Spider - ???
Grot Big Boss on Gigantic Spider - 60mm round


- Chariot base generally converts to 120x92mm oval, so some of these are no brainers
- However smaller chariots (goblin chariots, pump wagons, butcher cauldron characters) don't feel like they deserve that much wasted base space, and fit better on the 105x70mm oval
- Where I have questions are those places where I'm not really sure of the original model size, and the difference in base size is somewhat negligible in game but aesthetically would seriously detract from the mini

Anyhoo, those are my thoughts. As for the Arachnarok, I actually have two of them myself, and don't really want to put them on enormous circle (or rebase them at all, as those are big bases!)

Sizes in pictures look good. I wonder if it would be okay to do all ogres in 50mm for extra scenery roon. Or maybe it would just be too much.

I did my Maneaters on 50mm bases and there is definitely lots of extra room. For regular Ogres I think 40mm is about right. The Maneaters look a little sparse when they are together.
