Utilising what I already had available, we played one game with my 15mm Late Romans and Welsh (pictured below) and the other with my 6mm Late Romans and Goths. Despite the difference in scale, both these games were fought with figures based on 40mm frontages betraying their WRG origins. Using 1 base = 1 unit, both games fitted within a compact 2' x 2' arena.
|Single-rank, evenly based 15mm figures. Perfectly usable|
but they just don't cut it aesthetically, especially when
using 1 base = 1 unit.
Since the introduction of Impetus and its big bases, however, our eyes have been opened to a more dioramic approach, and a quick Google of Dux Bellorum images reveals some superb examples of raggedy battle lines, particularly in the smaller 6mm and 10mm scales.
