Re: 6mm Basing

I dont have any Adler figures so dont really know base size. Each baccus strip of infantry is 20mm long for four men and comfortable be two ranks deep on a 20mm by 20mm. In essence if wanting to do 40mm x 20mm it would take 4 strips of infantry amounting to 24 men per base. The difficulty is having ...

Re: 6mm Basing

In essence the same numbers of figures as I use. 40mm by 20mm are easier to move if not using movement trays.

Re: 6mm Basing

I believe its up to the players to do decide as long as both sides are the same. I use 20mm frontage for all my bases such as skirmisher, infantry, cavalry and artillery. Only the artillery have a deeper base size of 40mm. Might want to have larger bases for skirmishers, for example if your infantry...

Re: 100 Days - Battle of Gilly

Sounds like a good game. I was building forces to do the quatre bras scenario.

Although I may try the battle of gilly and swap the Prussians out for some Brunswick/Dutch troops as I have yet to start on Prussians yet.

Re: 6mm Basing

Not really, as i use movement trays as per picture. Just change the base if needing to change formation.

Re: Just a thought

In essence if you give an infantry unit an assault order successfully, then the unit does not need to check if its hesitant again until a unit within the brigade becomes unformed or the brigade completes its objective of the assault order
