Thanks Mollinary, I am planning on using four bases, two deep on a full width sabot, to represent a small unit of Dutch horse and two bases, one deep, on a full width sabot to represent a small unit of Swedish horse

But if I need lots of Dutch horse for a particular battle then I may go down the four base route

Not much happened this weekend as my Mum was down and Iíve had a shed load of school work (of which Iíve done the majority), but some bases got inkwashed tonight, a few 28mm Goblins assembled, and a mate dropped off 200+ Tlaxcalans to paint!  Cool

Off to a good start with that rebasing.

I finally decided that it was time to rebase my Warmaster Empire troops for out home brew rules - basically going from 40x20mm bases to 40x40mm bases. Obviously you can just push two 40x20mm bases together to get a 40x40mm base - and this is what I have been doing for a long time. But we are planning a big game, and I have realised that I have far too much cavalry compared to infantry. So it seems a good time to rebase the missile troops, as I will be able to nearly double the number of bases of troops I have, going from 8 figures on a 40x20mm base (doubled up to give 40x40), to 9 or so on a 40x40mm base.

The troops have a bath to loosen the glue - how many use PVA and how many superglue?

Most came off very easily, so lots based with PVA. There were a few that were a bit harder to remove, perhaps using superglue, or just because they were single figures it was harder to get leverage. The ones still soaking were based with wood filler, this was much more resistant to soaking, but leaving them a bit longer and flexing the bases they popped off. Only 1 casualty in the whole process.

And the first lot rebased

This was 7 units using double 40x20mm basing, going to 13 bigger 40x40 bases (along with some wizards going from 1p basing to 40x40mm squares).

In my experience it gives a much more Matt finish compared to the Vajello one

For what it is worth, I normally do not differentiate on bases or within a unit, but my later Swedish Style units are three bases side by side, and my more conservative, 1642-43 Parliamentarian Horse are four bases in two ranks of two.

I do my best!

Today i had the first taste of terror. Was in the middle of painting those straps, while the little one was supposed to be doing her afternoon nap, when after an hour  my wife said : i'm taking her back out of bed, she won't sleep.

Almost over with afternoon painting time!!!  At wits' end At wits' end At wits' end At wits' end At wits' end

Iím planning to use a single rank for chargers / Swedish and double ranks for shooters / Dutch

Iím basing my forces on Cheriton 1644, late enough that almost all units will be Swedish. For earlier battles where I want Dutch units I will put two units of the same colour on a double depth sabot base or combine two appropriately coloured units if Ďbrigadingí multiple smaller regiments
