Perhaps I am getting old and the memory is going, but it seems to me that I keep running out of bases at inopportune times. This week I wanted to start getting the MJ Figures Falklands War figures mounted and pictures taken, thinking I had plenty of bases as I recently received an order for two hundred 15mm circular bases from Litko. Well, I do, sort of. For my Force on Force/Ambush Alley/Tomorrow's War gaming I use 15mm bases for the grunts and 20mm bases for the leaders. In 15mm this makes it relatively easy to discern leaders on the table. Now, the MJ Figures are a bit larger than 15mm, but a standing or advancing infantryman still fits well enough on a 15mm circular base. No problems, right? Except, once again, I seem to have run out of bases...this time the 20mm ones I use for leaders! And, in looking over the MJ packs, there are several figures that are in a prone position, so that neither a 15mm or 20mm base will work. Off to the Litko website I go and place an order for 20mm and 25mm bases (yes, I still have plenty of 15mm ones...I hope).

I still haven't decided on what size base to use with The Scene's "not" Predator range. I've already placed Dutch Schaeffer on a 20mm base, as he was the leader of that little band of merry men, and the Khurasan "not" Predator is also mounted on a 20mm base. But the rest of the team I haven't decided on. As these figures will most likely be used with a different rules system, using the aforementioned methodology isn't as important. So I can finish mounting these figures now, or wait for my most recent Litko order to come in. Oh, speaking of rules, does anyone know a fun set already written for Predator?
|Quite a difference, eh?|
More to come...just gotta get those bases first!
