Now they are the business, I think if you keep posting these lovely photo's I'm going to have to look into this impetus thing. I have seen a unit of Dwarves based for a version of impetus that was a joy to study, on Steve Deans forum, the basing allows for some imaginative figure arrangements. I think the green edge to the base is a nice touch and something I don't see all that often

link I couldn't work out head from tale with the chaps blog so have posted the link to the post.

Yes you should give Impetus a try Dave, there's a free version "Basic Impetus" on their site you can download to kick off with, but it is only a taste really. The basing is right up your alley, a man of your ability could go to town.
The green edge I've done for a while now, " I think " it helps to blend the bases into the table, it's actually a very light olive green in reality.

Yeah I cant make head nor tail out of it, hence the link to the forum (sorry Matt). The forced perspective elements with the tunneling Dwarves is pure magic.

Will check out the impetus link, thanks Tarty

Always had a soft spot for Charles the Bold/Rash. Great job on the Burgundians - I do like the large bases and have been using these for some of my Hail Caesar Persians and Pontics.
