As my Prince August forces continue to grow I am considering the implications of single based figures. I do not intend to go for multi basing as these figures will be used by my son and I. Kids like the idea of single figures and he also gets to play with these as Toys - lining them up and knocking then over.
I had considered going down the magnetic base route using steel bases and magnetic strip on bases but decided that this was a costly method.
So instead I have quickly knocked up some movement trays using free off cut cardboard (courtesy of local Ilkley Art Shop impresario and fellow Old Schooler Tim (aka General Grecian) and stirrers from a local high street coffee shop
I sized the tray and extra 5mm front and side than the my base size, which is 20 by 30mm for infantry and 20 by 60mm for cavalry, and quickly stuck them together with lashings of PVA glue.
