So I promised a post on how I approach basing.
Now I know most of you are aware that I have a basing department working away in the cellar here, but I did teach her all I know. When I finished this unit of Saxon Cavalry I decided that I couldn't wait for the basing department to come home from University in York and add these to the waiting list so it seemed two birds with one stone was the way forward.
So Beusts Curassier finished, I glue the figures to laser cut MDF bases. for my Great Northern War collection I am using 50mm by 800mm deep for all units. It can be a bit tight on width but gives that densely packed formation look I wanted. The depth allows you to shift position of troops and to some extent makes up for the lack of width. It also means that all the models are inside the base and protected from my fat figures and those of my fellow wargamers.
The next Saxon foot and my first Russian foot are nearly ready so hopefully have a workbench update with these very soon.
Thanks for reading.
