I now have 3 sections of Japanese ready for action, platoon command and an HMG team so am ready to give the Bolt Action rules a go.
I have never been a fan of single based figures/games- Far too much faffing about moving figures for my liking. However I see some people are using multiple stand movement trays or their figures in Bolt Action so have decided to experiment with two figure bases for my figures. I am doing so for my weapon teams such as light mortars and LMGs anyway- using a counter or die to record losses if need be.
My thoughts are that most figures will be double based on the Rendra plastic 45mmx 40mm bases I use or LMG teams.
So what I am thinking is or a unit of 12 Japanese or example:
1x single figure stand
1x LMG team
4x double based teams
So slightly less movement fiddling about. The single figure stand can also be used to replace a stand when I need to have a single casualty.
Anyone else use similar systems?
Here is my first 12 man section done this way. All miniatures are The Assault Group and they are highly recommended.
