We then have two battalions of foot so you can see how this actual looks closer up. For the foot I have used "virtual third rank" idea pinched from other blogs doing GNW including Black Powder games and Der Alt Fritz both at the bottom of my page. drummer or file closer at the bank giving the impression of a third rank. I like this approach.
I had some concerns about the standing unit looking lost on the big bases but I think it works really well.
In the command and pike base here the virtual rank is in the middle.
And again with the charging command and Pike.
And again with the Swedish horse allows the wedge formation to form properly, but keeps them nice and tight.
Initially I was going to base the Saxons on 60mm depth, the foot in particular marching should look better, but as below I am not sure if its a little shallow for the horses, they will touch the fingers either end when being moved.
On a deeper base this isn't a problem.
So I am almost there, I think this is probably the way forward but would welcome comments and opinions. What does everyone think?
