I was looking at Blue Moon's Horror set "I Just Don't Feel My Age" (It's their Mummy set). However, I universally use Games Worksop style bases for my late 19th cen/WW1 stuff, since it's what I've always used and I'm attached to them. However, I'me worried these Blue Moon Minis will not fit on a round 25mm 40k style base. However, I've never owned Blue Moon, so I don't know for sure. Can some one possibly verify you can fit 40k 25mm bases on Blue Moon figures?

Here's a pic of the set:

The Blue Moon Figure's bases are 25mm round, so they will fit exactly with 25mm round bases. That said, they are fairly tall for bases, so your figures may look taller than others. For reasons of transport and weight, I mount all of my figures individually on magnetic bases and I use 25mm round bases for these figures. The tallness of the figures, once they are glued to the bases, doesn't bother me, but I don't know if they will be too tall for you. Width wise, however, they are a perfect fit. I hope this helps.

Yes, it does. Thanks you.

Are Blue Moon's Bases from Proxie Models? They seem to have the same size lip and if they have some texture in the middle (can't see in pictures) then they probably are.

Proxie Model's style 25mm bases actually have a smaller basing area within the lip than a standard GW-style slotta does on top, so anything that will fit in a Proxie 25mm (and presumeably a Blue Moon base) will fit on a GW slotta top.

I actually did a comparison of GW, Privateer, Proxie and a few other base types a while back looking at the actual basing area offered by different types of bases.

The most interesting discovery was that the top of a 25mm GW slotta and the inside of the large-lipped 30mm Privateer-press style base have exactly the same basing area!
