In amidst the great basing debate, I thought I'd kill two birds with one stone and also show some actual painting progress by me. Basing and the figure ratios that go on these, are just something that is part-and-parcel of ancients gaming. We don't like to over think our Impetvs to the degree that something like FOG requires but we have changed from the 'standard' so have to think through how best to model our forces accordingly. We use 8cm frontages for our 28mm Impetvs but haven't quite settled on a standard for fig density. Some have suggested that it is good to make figures go further, which due to not exactly being rich, I can agree with. However, tabletop wargaming is a visual hobby, and that was a key motivator for going to 28mm (now that plastics make this viable). I always thought DBA elements with two horsemen on a base looked distinctly odd, and am keen to avoid basing standards that have that as a lower end. So the last thing I want is a system where it is: four for CP, three for CM and two for CL.
