So I think I've settled on 10mm for the "grand scale" effect; I ordered a few batches of miniatures from Old Glory (the 40% off on their army deal is fantastic). But I have a basing question for folks out there. For those of you who play at this scale, how are you basing your figures? The old glory figures come on a convenient 5 model strip so I was planning on doing the 15mm standard of bases that are 40mm x 30mm. The strips fit neatly on a 40mm frontage and I was thinking 2 or 3 lines deep per base. Has anyone tried this? Do the bases look good, or too busy? Any thoughts?
Best thing is to try placing the rows on bases and see what looks best to you. Originally I was going to go with 4 28mm figs for a skirmishing element of light infantry, but after getting them on the base it looked too crowded for me. Ended up going with 3 for the light infantry skirmish element and 2 for a skirmisher attachment. Looks better to me.
i have rebased all my 10mm and 2 rows of 5 for inf looks good cav still 3 and art 1. i use OG figures as well but i prefer to cut them all apart and then base them, i have 3 armies atm Russian, Austrian and Brit all 10mm
