One of the most dreaded words in wargaming: rebasing
A big foul up on my part had the wood cut by a friend into bases, cut into the wrong sizes. I pulled out one of my SYW artillery bases to compare and placed it beside the existing Napoleonic infantry bases and, you know what, it looked good! More in 'scale' to what the infantry are and more 'proportional'.
No scientific rationalization or even mathematical calculations for any of this. Just looks good.
Been having trouble with our firing arcs for the rules and while these smaller sizes could help with that, the look had me immediately excited.
I have felt this a few times in my long wargaming life and it has always turned out to be a good thing. With that feeling, I took some quick pictures and sent them to Seth for his thoughts and approval. He said he liked it too.
I still must terrain and flock. Sigh. But this was necessary -- in a wargamer sort of way --- I truly hope.....
