I have been slowly assembling my Ever-Present Glory minis, and have run into a slight problem. Many of the EPG troops that I bought are holding their long spears in attack mode, which means that there might be some struggles with ranking the figures once they are painted and mounted onto bases. After a bit of experimentation, I have a solution that seems to work:
The white plastic base is a 40mm square. Does it look crowded? I like the idea of the 40mm bases; it will keep the frontage of the units a bit smaller on the tabletop. My vision for units (heavy infantry units at least) is to have 6 40mm bases, 3 bases wide and 2 bases deep, 4 minis per base, for 24 minis per unit.
Now that the minis are being assembled, it will soon be time to start painting! I am mounting the minis temporarily onto nails, and I cobbled together a box to hold them during painting:
That is a plastic container I salvaged from work, with some foam inside of it to stick the nails into...
