The Dreaded Re-basing

We all hate it, but most of us have to (well, choose to!) do it from time to time. This one was worth the effort as I wanted my irregular sepoys to be on single rather than multi- bases so that they work better for Sharp Practice. They can still go onto sabots for games where they need to form up in a battalion.

They're RSM figures, a mix of their Ottoman figures with some minor conversions in the form of weapons added to hands. They've seen service in several games, as a battalion made up of 6 bases of 5. With a couple of spares kindly donated by Count Belisarius I will be able to make 4 groups of 8 or 3 of 10 (militia) for Sharp Practice.

Then: the 'soak the mdf base in water' method:


Now: on 20mm washers:


Much happier!

    Least it was an MDF base, I found them much easier than the old artist card and filler....
