Basing for Blucher

   Lately we have been toying with Blucher. After some consideration we settled on an 80x60mm magnetic sabot. At the back of the sabot sits an 80x20mm label on steel paper making labels easy to change for each scenario. The labels are covered with transparent plastic so that they can be marked for casualties etc. and then wiped clean at the end of the day. The front 80x40 mm is filled by the troops . Our current bases are steel and are based 40x20 bases for infantry, 40x40 for cavalry, 40x40 for artillery. The infantry are in 3 ranks of 7 the cavalry in 2 ranks of 6, the artillery 3 guns per base.  So for the Blucher bases we would use 4 infantry, 2 cavalry or 2 artillery. I made a test shot of the infantry and I am very pleased with the results. The cavalry look even better I think.

This will almost certainly be the format we go with.
