I've changed my mind again on the basing for C&C. How much time must wargamers waste on the whole basing issue?
Anyway I'm going for 12cm frontage with 6cm depth for infantry and 8cm for cavalry. Figure ratios will be about 10 for heavy infantry down to 4-6 for light bowmen. The size and ratio also works out really well for Impetus. If you've never tried Impetus you can download a free lite-version called Basic Impetus from Dadi & Piombo.
The pic shows some test bases for the basing, I did find nearly enough figures for a Spartan and Greek army in a drawer so C&C Expansion 1 is on the cards.
