If you do not mind extra work, and slightly less traditional bases... how about using a small magnetic base (flocked etc with a uniform technique) for each miniature, then have various "base bases" which you can simply put the magnetic base on. These bases could be plain (with unit information on them as needed etc). I have seen this down rather well for games were it is common to put minis on unit trays. If you don't want to do up the "base bases" with flock etc, you can use printed labels ontop of magnetic sheet, so you can just print the base with grass, unit info etc as need.
(I am thinking of doing this for my FOG army to allow me to move and ID units in Battle groups.)
yes thanks presi
definately considering magnetic
a trader fellow who frequents Moab and Leviathan supplies suitable bases as such..
id be happy to give him my money [if bulk deal can be had] if my sizes are decided.
just a matter of deciding on 20 x 20 per figure for me...and forgeting whats gone before.ie 15 x 20
really I am trying to get a n idea if people think the trend will be towards larger bases purely because we need to accomodate larger figures...as really most of my armies are old now they need rebasing especially as i have added many new elements second hand and there is a multitude of bases. and sizes..
just looking for consistency
and as much as I hate to admit it GW basing is a consistency I feel compelled to follow...
