Representing Napoleonic infantry formations on the tabletopPosted: March 6, 2015
- 50mm x 25mm bases for the infantry (with three figures per base)
- 50mm x 50mm bases for the cavalry (with two figures per base)
I chose these sizes because they fitted in well with my Hexon II hexed terrain, which is made up of hexes that are 100mm from face-to-face.
I also decided to have two bases to represent an infantry or a cavalry unit as this allowed me to represent the three main infantry formations (column, line, and square) thus:
Infantry in column
Infantry in line
Infantry in square
The figures featured in these photographs are some of my newly-based Dutch-Belgian infantry … who do seem to bear a resemblance to US infantry of the War of 1812.
