I've been pondering my dilemma- 4x figs on 5cm wide basing looking too much like skirmishers. One thought I've had is to use two different base sizes- one 6cm and one 4cm wide so that my figures have the same frontage as Kent's in column of attack (10cm wide) or line (20cm) wide but I'd manage to get 20 figures per battalion (up from 16) and a narrower frontage per figure. The bases would like like this:
These two ideas might warrant further investigation so I might mock up some bases to test the out. .
Other good news, my copy of Black Powder arrived along with some lovely Victrix Austrians.
Now for a change of pace Kent and I hope to get a Crusades game of Impetus in tomorrow night- my Seljuks vs his Early Crusaders.
