Hello, I'm a old gamer in exile. Been out of the hobby for over 15 years. Ancient Wargaming in 28mm is my main focus. I have seen the incredible pictures of the fine painted WF figures in this site, and am scratching my head out how I should base my figures.
Plastic is very light, so what should I base them on, and should I use some kind of magnet under the bases to keep them from moving around on a tray. What kind of tray should I use? I have played DBA and big battle DBA, and am leaning toward making some really mass battles. I like my figures to be able to be used in different ways, skirmishing, small tactics battles, and in big battles so I want something to will work in such a manner.
So, small round bases seem the way to go. But, with special trays to drop them onto for different games. What do you guys use, and is there anything like what I'm talking about out there. I'm quite clueless about this, since all my old figures are on card.
Once I figure this out and get the supplies I'll need, then I'll get busy on ordering the Celtic Plastics an the Caesarian Legionari. Along with some others for good measure. My focus will be on the Celtic and Roman Civil Wars of the 1st Century BCE.
Thanks in advance for any tips, tricks, or information on basing and movement trays.
