Did I gather you've still got the Warmaster armies you mentioned above?

You could go for just using those, either one base = one Warband unit, or two wide (on a piece of card for sabot!) = one unit...

Then get proper sabots or more lead as needed when you're happy it works :)

nah i had to sell off most of my games quite a few years ago when we moved from one of the cities to a small town and no gaming community.

will spend some time checking out the MDF bases

Ah, that's a shame!

I'd suggest either 50mm bases so there's an easy trade up to "full size" bases in future (if you want/need to!), or 60mm by 30mm for a good size that doesn't take too many figures to look good, gives a bit of a less fiddly game for measurements, and can still be made nice & scenic and en mass without breakin the bank :)

Welcome from me Greywolf. :)

Like others have suggested, I'd be tempted to add some more bases to your order to "stretch" the units a bit.  My Warmaster minis are based one strip to a base rather than two, for exactly the same reason.

In my case...bloody infinite.

Some of them, some more of them...ooh, shiny!  Some of them too!

Repeat until house is buried. :D

Speaking of shinny I showed my son the rest of the hill dwarfs and being an almost 7 year old he noticed the gyrocoptors.

So was wondering if I am to go the "spread out" format (eg 2x 50mmx25mm how many per base ? And then how packs of warriors packs would I need? (1 or 2)
As he really wants one of each pack would this be more expensive option?
