Basing for 6mm figures
I am looking to base my 6mm figures and would like to see if anyone else is using this scale and what ground scale and #fig. per base.
Thanks for the quick reply. I have just found out I will need to buy the original manual and the Austerlitz book again
because i've had to move into a assisted living facility and most of my books were left in my home and the purchaser
We use 6mm figures and the 1 inch to 100 yards ground scale. A normal sized infantry battalion is on a 50mm frontage by 30mm depth mdf base. Roughly 10 figures to a rank, 3 ranks to a battalion. Gives a nice impression. Smaller battalions are based on 40mm by 30mm bases (about 24 figures). Not done any large battalions yet but they would be on a 60mm by 30mm base and have more figures(probably 36ish). Cavalry squadron groups are also based on a 40mm by 30mm base - two ranks, 5 figures per rank.
Command stands are based on circular bases. Obviously increasing in size and the number of figures as you progress up the hierarchy.
1 inch to 100 yards makes it much easier to convert maps etc...
I’m using 6mm minis and have gone with 150-yard scale. Units are on 40x25mm bases, each containing a standard Baccus Miniatures unit of 24 Infantry (in 3 ranks), or 9 cavalry (in 2 ranks).
