Quote from: Daniele on 06 June 2022, 07:47:39 PMHello everybody, it's Daniele from Italy.I decided to start my new 6mm. cold war project using Cold War Commander rules and I'm totally new to the period and the ruleset.I read on other topics that bases dimensions aren't so important but that a 40x20 mm. basing for infantry is widely diffused.I would like to play at a level in which a single miniature or vehicle represents a single man/vehicle.Do you think to put 3-5 miniatures on 40x20 mm. bases can be a good way to base my troops? I can't understand if this basing sistem may have consequence on gameplay because I'm new to the game.For example, knowing that a soviet BMP-BTR APC has inside 7 soldiers, amongst which one carries a light MG and one an RPG 7 anti tank rockets launcher, may it be a good way for basing to put the LMG on a base with 4 total miniatures and the RPG 7 in another one with three miniatures? Alternatively I could put all seven miniatures on a bigger base but I don't like so much this solution and I think, after giving a look at army lists, that special weapon such RPG 7 should have their own base.Can anyone help me to understand the best way to base my troops?Thank very muchDaniele

May be too much infantry bases if confronted with vehicles models, or too much points spent for infantry? I really would like to put 4-5 miniatures on a common infantry base and 3 miniatures on special weapon bases, so a squad of 7-8 people should be divided in two bases representing two teams (something similar to FOW basing).
