Single figure bases

Posted by Kekso on 05 Jul 2015, 12:08

Hi guys... not much of a tutorial... more like an idea. This morning I found some old game with letters and words. Single letter looks too small for 1/72 cavalry figure but great for single infantry one. It is 24 x 24 milimeters and 7 milimeters thick. I'm not a wargamer so I'm not sure if that would "fit" into any of wargaming rules but I will try to base some figures with it.

Sorry for poor photo (taken with my mobile) but you'll get an idea what it looks like.

A bright idea,Dalibor.
When working on such stuff us Brits,like to leave certain letters for short breaks in between the work.
Yes, we love our T Breaks! BB

Different wargames rules are pretty prescriptive about base size: eg medium infantry in FoG-R are 3 figures on 60 X 30mm rectangular bases etc.

Rules that have individually based figures might work but coins or washers normally do the trick; particularly if you have 60 or 200 figures to base the same way.
