Nick
 I have been looking at Muskets and Tomahawks just ive seen a few other recommendations.

 I was thinking in small groups due to the fact I know it was mostly in forested areas. but single based 10mm figures
with all them trees would be hard to keep track of. (not that im scared of individual figures got 6mm sci fi individually, and 6mm Necromunda)
and the figures based up in the photo's just seem to look a bit better in small groups.

I stand corrected the figures are individually based ! ( :- now where did I see them based in groups of 2-3 ? or is Old Timers kicking in ?)

No probs - it were just a sugestion, may be pairs would work though. If singles 12.7mm square bases are fine.

I've seen people do small groups for games like Rebels and Patriots, which is technically for individual-based models but works well with two or three 10mm on a similar-sized base. I've individually based some 10mm (well 12mm) fantasy figures on reasonably scenic bases, I think maybe 20mm or 25mm round. Any smaller than that could get pretty fiddly.

Iíve done 10mm skirmish on 1, 2, 3 basing, as used in some of the later Dragon Rampant based rules (Pikeman's Lament and Rebels and Patriots). With this you base 1, 2 or 3 figures on a base and have units of 6 or 12 figures. You end up with half the bases compared to the total number of figures, so movement etc is easier. But you always have options to take off any number of casualties. And it lets you arrange the figures in different ways, without having to worry about individual figure positioning. I think I went with 15mm, 20mm and 25mm bases.

I'm guessing they'd frown on using a VPN to get around such security restrictions too.  Sad

I tend to use my phone for most browsing and forum stuff, I take it that's not an option either?

I have a UK sim so restricted on access over here.
Germans want too much info to get a German sim to use.

There are some international roaming data only sims you can get I think. Probably works out pretty pricey mind you!
