God we love our jargon. Do you think any casual reader understands what the title refers to. The more organised gamer may use the same figures in sabots that allow him/her/zim to utilise the same figures but real men just collect more and more metal. And now, I’ve even got back into painting and basing ( and tackling the lead bedroom floor in the process)
The problem is of course how to base your miniatures if you don’t stick to one set of rules. It may not be a perfect answer but I use either 40mm squares or 80mm wide “Impetvs” bases. These bases cover the main , most popular systems. The squares are fine for L’art de la Guerre and the original De Bellis Antiquitatis. The larger bases can be used for Big Base DBA ( more to come on this one), Impetvs and Kings of War. I do really like the bigger bases but I still love LADG so I’m not rebasing everything.
As you can see, it’s been a productive week but there remains more to finish off. I would dearly love to collect enogh bases that I wouldn’t need to mix and match between boxes but I don’t think the rafters would take the strain. Truly inspired by a mini campaign Mike Lane and I played last week
