Warwagon base size

Post by jbbpioneer » Sun Oct 10, 2021 8:37 pm

I just picked up a nice Hussite DBA/Triumph army at Hurricon in Florida last month. Having lived for 2 years in Prague, I know all about the Hussites and was eager to try them out on the table.

But I have a problem... the wagons are mounted nicely with the horse teams in place and are on a 40x80mm base vs. the 40x40 base size for 15mm. I really want to preserve the nice models and am wondering what adjustments I could make to the rules to use the 40x80 bases as WWG.

Any ideas from anyone?

Many thanks... Jeff

Hey Jeff,

The easiest solution is to use 80mm bases and make a single WWg base be two of your 40x80s together. The army looks really good that way, too.

Of course, then you have a nightmare trying to find opponents with the same basing system.

We wrestled for several years with the problem of 40x80 bases on WWg. Writing rules that work with double-size bases was a horror. Which is why we eventually gave up and went with square bases for WWg.

In friendly games in a small environment where everyone agrees in advance you can do a lot of stuff -- but I rebased all my WWg from 40x80 to 40x40 after we went with square bases, and I can tell you that it's just better.
