Since I actually painted every last Uruk myself, my lovely wife has been 'dabbling' with a project of her own, over the last month and a half.
I found these cool flags here. The basing is a bit plain, but functional enough for now. I'm still not sure how I want to do this, so I've left them in this usable state as a way of protecting the miniatures, which (being plastic pike men) tend to snap if you look at them wrong!
like my Vikings, but that only has 8 guys to a base. I like these better with 10 and it means they can face off against my WOTR collection if I ever play Fantasy Impetus. The other reason I chose this size was that it has the same frontage as a Warhammer Fantasy modular movement tray with a five x 20 cm frontage (due to the extra width from the tray) so they match well vs other armies based that way. So these can be used for at least Mantic's 'Kings of War', which Jason and I have used before, and potentially even more Warhammer Fantasy - Should that ever eventuate.
I can't wait to lead these boys into battle vs Jason's fantasy Romans, using Basic Impetus.
For future basing, I am thinking that I might do these on 6cm x 6cm squares. Then I can make 18cm frontage (which seems to be the way the Baroque lists will go)units with a block of pike flanked by Musket, which is a more appropriate ECW ratio of weapons. Otherwise, I'm going to have a lot of surplus Muskets from the alternative method of just doing the muskets that way and adding extender bases of them to the sides of the pike if I ever play Impetus Baroque. Mixed pike and shotte does not seem to be a feature of the Basic Impetus lists I have seen, but does also exist in Fantasy Impetus, so I'd like to have the option to represent it.
Since Jason wants to put that off (what? his wife isn't painting his figs fast enough?), it looks like more WOTR for the next TTG, so Wildmen of Dunland are the official profect for next month.
