Great painting, nice figures. Well done.

I’m thinking a mix of 30x30 and 60x30 bases on Sabots? I went with 20x20 and 40x20 bases myself. :)

I'm going to go with sabots as well to make it go further. A couple of corps is a lot of kit! (even in 6mm)

Looking good. The smaller scale certainly allows for grander battles.

Some updates. I've hit 250 pts for French - got four infantry brigades to go. Turning attention now to Prussians.

Nice stuff! Lovely...

You’ve changed to ‘full’ large bases now for these?

Working on a Waterloo game with my mates we’re going to use 40x20 (generally) Brigade bases with the units details off board on a sheet that’ll allow us maximum use of our tabletop.

We've established a 6mm Blucher Group in Canberra and by general consensus, we've decided on a 90mm frontage, with 60mm depth. To match the size of the cards available from Mustafa. Won't stop other dimensions being used - the cards will essentially be the template.

We're also getting Olympian Games to produce a game support pack with those dimensions in mind (eg 1BW = 90mm).

I've been working on an excel spreadsheet to capture the data. Example below..

90 x 60 wow allows for a lot of diorama type basing. Your games should look good! Looking forward to seeing some game pictures.

I tried 80 x 40 and 80 x 50 (with the latter the last 10mm of depth was for a unit details strip) I discounted both as too big for my usual 1800 x 1200 table top.
