Hi Matt, what basing would you prefer, 100x50mm (as for Warband Fantasy), or 80x40mm (to fit in with the dominant DBx basing conventions)?

That's a tough call.  I'm trying to base in a way that looks good, is easy to store, is moderately figure efficient, and will allow for a wide variety of games from Hail Caesar, to Kings of War Historical, to Warband.  It would be nice enough if I could also play Warmaster, but I have met zero warmaster players in the past 5 years so that's not exactly a priority.

I have done a few units so far from my napoleonics and opted for 40x20.  I really love how they look all packed together, but I have found that 24 models in two or three ranks looks pretty stellar on a 80x40 base (and would look passable on a 100x50 as well). 

If this game set required 100x50 I would most likely mount everything on 40x40's and put two 40x40's of 10-12 models each into a warband sabot.

I was recently looking at the Austrians posted in this forum for C&C and I was thinking of the same look but cutting down the models per rank to fit the planned dimensions. 

This basing style also makes room for a dice holder for every 40x40 element which is essential for games like Warband (as far as I can tell...I don't have the rules), KoW, and C&C.

To clarify on storage:
It's my impression that 40x20 basing requires foam or magnets to be safe whereas the 40x40 or larger are safe enough to just lie flat in a box for a car ride.
