Again, a long time since my last post. This time I took a few shots of some Sudan Dervishes to show you how I cheat on the numbers of figures. Occasionally I will do some bases with lots of rocks and grass on them. The pictured bases show a basing system I used about 20 years ago when I played Peter Gilder's rules for colonial gaming. A fun set and available again, the mechanics were a bit clunky and the fun bits were Pony Wars. Anyway, I left that behind but for BFE I retained the basing and it works fine -- a bit shallow and too wide, but for a Massed unit (front and rear stands combined into two larger bases) it works. And all those rocks really look good and stretch my collection even further. Haven't finished dry-brushing or flocking the last ones.
