150 yards an inch basing for 15mm
I haven't purchased the rules quite yet, but received 'We Shall Meet in Vienna,' for Christmas and after reviewing the tutorials I am sold! It seems like the 10mm army packs come with 30mm square bases for 150 yards an inch ground scale.
Would it be recommended to use 30mm square bases for 15's at that ground scale as well?
For 15mm we generally recommend either 100 yards per inch or 75 yards per inch, but it is really up to you as far as what you like the look of and what size table you use. We do have players using 15mm figures at the 1"=150 yard scale, and yes, they generally use the 30mm bases.
Hey David! Thanks for the quick reply. Going with 15's at 150/inch only because my max table space in the old man cave is 11x5, and my collection is already in 15's.
By all the looks you've designed a hell of a game here that well suits my own desire of something not too fiddly, but a little on the crunchy side. I'm very much looking forward to giving them a go.
My 15mm Napoleonics are based for Shako (because that's what people in my area play) with an infantry unit in line being 3" wide.
I use them as based at 75 Yards scale and split the units in two to play 150 Yards scale (see the photo).
I would figure out what looks good WITH YOUR CURRENT basing and just go with that. (Or, as David would say, "sell all your 15s and replace them with 10s - think of the space you'll save!")

For my 15s I use basically two Nap's Battles or AoE bases equal one unit: that is 8 infantry in 2 ranks on a 1.5-inch base. The ground scale is 75 to 100 yards per inch. My fifteens are for Italy in 1796, so the battlefields aren't huge, and the ground scales work. Unfortunately I don't have many painted.
