Napolionics and bases

Hi everyone,

I am looking at starting some 6mm projects, namely Napoleonic. I was wondering what size bases the units need to be based on or is it solely dependant on the rule-set as this site sells bases of one size, but other sites show bases of other sizes.

Any information will be greatly appriciated.

Cheers,

Goffik

Hello Goffik:

The Baccus strips are 20mm wide so I base all my Baccus on 20x20mm metal (steel) bases. When I play a Poleomos style game, I make 60mm wide bases with sheet magnet and just put three steel bases on this larger base. Then I can very easily cut magnet bases to size for whatever rules set we're playing that week.

It very much depends on what you want to model - brigades, regiments, battalions? I am most likely to go for 60mmx6omm for rules such as Volley and Bayonet, The Painting Shed, Blucher and of course Polemos.

I base 60mm frontage regardless of rulesets.


Through the travail of the ages Midst the pomp and toil of war Have I fought and strove and perished Countless times upon this star.
So as through a glass and darkly The age long strife I see Where I fought in many guises, Many names but always me.
So forever in the future Shall I battle as of yore, Dying to be born a fighter But to die again once more.
