You are correct. While it might be more fun to engineer a chain drive, It would more than likely be a total headache to implement it. Simpler is usually better. I'll go with a couple of these little DC gearmotors instead. http://www.surplu...e=electric
That simplifies things considerably while also decreasing the size of the base.
As you can see here:

I'll start scrounging around for parts this weekend.
