A quick question as a follow up to my other thread regarding Q13 and AQOMF, (i haven't bought a copy of the rules yet)
I wondered what basing conventions were used for Q13, I'm just starting on my first batch of black hat British.
Cheers guys. :?:

Anything you like, provided shock and casualties can be shown.

My various armies are based individually, in twos, in threes even.

Back to basing again, what have you used for bases, at first i thought uk pennies but they look too small. Care to tell us what you use please?

Well as Rob said "Anything you like" So blutac a few figures to different bases to see what floats your boat. :)

For my 15mm I base two or three figures on bases I have cut from plastic card (for example two figures would go on a base that I have cut to 20mmx20mm) and for my big men I use pennies for individuals or a two pence piece if I want a to give my big man a lackey or similar.

My regular opponent sticks four to five figures on a Flames of War base and pennies again for his big men.

I base normal sized individual 15mm figures on 5p pieces, bigger ones on 1p pieces and twos or huge figures on 2p pieces. Otherwise I use pre-cut bases from all sorts of manufacturers: whatever fits what I want to do with the figures.

I'm piqued by these rules, can someone tell me is it CoC in space ? (I mean that in a positive way) :)

If you go to www.vislardica.com, you can see quite a lot of info about Q13. Battle reports and more. But it's a company sized game, so IABSM or CDS in space.

I am using washers of any size, just as the miniature's plinth requires. They are thin and heavy and I can fix them on a magnetic sheet for transport. For special sizes and shapes I cut ferrous metal sheet to shape

I use 40mm x 20mm bases for 5 6mm figures and base my big men and support weapons on round 20mm bases. Vehicles and beyond are based on round 40mm+ bases depending on requirements. Just finished basing the my first Quar companies in 6mm for use with Q13.
