There are a a few old hands on the forum who will remember the last great debate within SESWC about Claymore money going to charity. I have never supported the idea. By all means give a charity some free space at the show and allow those attending to contribute if they want to. I am not entirely at ...

Even better use 6mm and you can do the whole battle :lol:
I'm working my way through some Baccus (lovely little figures and you can even tell what they're supposed to be). The units are based as a single battaion on 60x30 mm.

Barry A well constructed and reasoned article. I would argue that there is no such thing as a bad set of rules, only rule sets that we don't like. I have heard so much BS over the years about realism. At best they are an informed writer's interpretation, at worst they are based on reading the histor...

Barry You don't say whether it is 28mm or 15mm. For 28s the frontage per figure is 15mm. A stand is 40 mm deep in two ranks. French are 36 figure battalions for line (6 stands of 6 figures) although I have seen them in 32 figure battalions (4 stands of eight). The convention for 'Gilder' style units...
