I was looking at some mantas and thurnderhawk miniatures and was wondering how many models per stand I should use as a standard. What is the general consensus on this?

I've seen 2, 3 and 5 used for fighter markers. As they are both large ends of the markers, I could even see mantas being singles. But I'd say 2 mantas and 3 thawks would be fine

I'd go 2 thunderhawks and 1 manta. Mostly because I'm cheap, but also because they're pretty large for a 20mm square marker.

EDIT: I mean 2 thunderhawks on one base. One manta on a different base. Don't put them all on the same base as that would be insane.

Thanks for the replies. I was looking at the manta, and thought one per base was sufficient but was curious what others thought. As for the thunderhawks, I thought two per base would work, but seems like I have seen one per base somewhere.

I've seen the Thunderhawks 1 to a base too. I think they look better with 2 but 1 is ok if you prefer. I think a lot of Heresy era players also use 1 Stormbird to a base instead of Thunderhawks.
