Quote from: Steve J on 14 April 2020, 06:30:42 PMInteresting reading Matthew. I've pretty much settled on 25mm square bases for my BP games, with 4 bases to a unit. It just works for me and importantly can be used across several rulesets should I choose to do so.

You also need a reasonable amount, I will often put a layer on the figure base as well as the MDF base. One other big advantage of PVA basing, is that you can rebase the figures fairly easily - if at some point in the future you change things up. With superglue you generally have to hack a lot of base off the figures. For crusaders (or any desert figures) I'd try the add figures and sand to base at the same time, approach, makes things much quicker and simpler. Trying to poke basing material around lots of figures is hard. For gridded games, with 2 ranks in a box, then rectangular bases are key. 40x20 is probably the smallest you can go. 50x25mm is a lot bigger. With 40x20 you can probably get 10 max of Pendraken figures on them for close order troops - with as few as 3 or 4 for skirmishers.
