    Nice work on those sabots. I like that it has the label and die holder.

    Properly used, sabots like this reduce the need to rebase, and improve the overall look of the game.

    In your first sentence you really mean ‘1983’ don’t you?

    My 15mm army is based for Napoleon’s Battles (a system I still get a lot of enjoyment out of – you are right about combined arms attacks, but they still require some skill to pull off and with skill can be reduced in impact) and I have recently picked up the Blucher rules as I am looking for a Nopleonic system that is easy to play on a club night and also intrigued about the campaign system. I went with 3×2 inch bases and was piling on 8 of my Napoleon’s Battles infantry bases. You technique looks better.

    I tried aout a few combinations before deciding on that one. Clincher was that some of my clubmates have their Napoleonics based 40mm x 30mm. With 90mm x 60mm sabots we can all get bases that are the same size and which look much the same.

    And you get twice as many sabots if you don’t pile the models on.

    Mind you I’ve found that you don’t even need 25 bases a side to get an evening’s entertainment. I’ll only be needing the 100 I’ve made for all day games.

    I’m impressed, 100 bases, it doesn’t seem much until you realise there’s 16 figures to 1 base.
    Going back 45+ years ago when I finally settled on napoleonic games, 20mm Hinton Hunt and Miniature Figurines, moaning about how long it took to paint a battalion of 20 figures..
    Then having to mix 25mm figures on the table because that’s what everyone else was buying.
    The thought of painting 25 bases (400 figures) would put me off for life..

    Inspiring post- just found a variant for ACW and needed just such advice!
