|Cavalry, Artillery and Command basing|
Tiny = 1 base
Small = 2 bases
Standard = 3 bases
Large = 4 bases
A Tiny unit ie Rifle Company is sometimes represented by one half base of 3 figures
With sorted it was time to think of materials to use. After attempting to cut uniform size bases out of plasticard I decided life was too short and switched to pre cut 2mm thick MDF bases from Warbases.
As for the actual texturing of the bases one of the club members had a video on his Blog showing how he bases his figures and after watching this I now use the same method.
I also decided to identify my units with labels whilst trying not to ruin the aesthetic of the units. To this end I printed stickers which are placed on the underside of the bases along with another placed on the rear edge of the base. This rear one utilises the Arial font at size 5.

Hopefully this explains how I came to my basing decisions.
