28mm Successors WIP 3

Manage to finish off the 28mm Foundry Macedonian figures painted as Successors. The miniatures are mounted on 40mm x 40mm bases. Three 40x40 bases (12cm frontage) representing one basic impetvs unit...

Commands and Colors Ancients option: displaying below, 4 strength point Heavy infantry (pike) units. I have enough units here to play CCA successors scenarios....

The units/bases above allows me to play with Hail Caesar and to The Strongest rules sets.  I like the 40mm x 40mm bases which I will use for all infantry,skirmishers etc. Cavalry bases may be an issue my commanders will be mounted on circular bases....

Thanks guys for your base size suggestions!

28mm Successors WIP 2

Basing anyone?

Playing around with ideas on how to base miniatures for Impetvs, Hail Caesar, To the Strongest and Commands & Colors...

16 Figures representing one Impetvs unit on 4 Stands x 60mm x 20mm (Frontage 12cm x 4cm or 6cm )

24 Figures representing one Impetvs unit. figures on 60mm x 20mm (6 Stands)  with three ranks this looks more of a pike block?

12 Figures representing one Basic Impetvs unit... figures on 60mm x 40mm (2 Stands)

Two Basic Impetvs units. figures on 40mm x 40mm (3 Stands each) This may be the better option to base my Successors minis it will also allow me to use the bases for Commands & Colors Ancients.

Commands & Colors Ancients 4 figure bases 40mm x 40mm..umm..hmm..notice some minor "gap" issues between the figures.... extra flocking/terrain features may help?

Playing around displaying units with basing options...

A long way to go to finish off this project! I also have Old Glory Miniatures - foot Archers, Slingers and Javelinmen to work on... Two figure 40mm x 40mm bases?

I need to find i.e. (Ptolemaic/Seleucid's) 28mm Successor Companions Cavalry, Heavy line Cavalry and Light Cavalry... question is which manufactures? :o) metal or plastic?..

...anyway back to cleaning/prep more pikemen and then on to painting!
