The largest unit that I know of to use the wedge formation was the Byzantine Clibanophoroi, a unit of 504 men.

Wedges were usually formed by smaller tactical units than those used for FOG. See Asclepiodotus "Tactics part VII -The Cavalry". As such each base would consist of one or more wedges. Nice looking figures.

I have used artist mat board for my plastics. I had some on heavier bases and unfortunately the box they were in was knocked over. I had to spend some time gluing broken figures together that were damaged by the heavy bases. No such problem with the mat board.

If you can find a copy I would also recommend "Armies of the Macedonian and Punic Wars" for uniform information. Silius Italicus and Polybius are the two ancient authors that mention anything about the colors that were used.

I would have to agree that the quality levels are too high and that there are too many special rules. I would make the dwarfs resistant to magic though.
There is also a dwarf army list for middle earth at http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/FoG_fantasy/
