Napoleonic bases

Can anyone let me know what the basing is for Age of Eagles and Blucher? Base size and no. of figs etc for each troop type.

Dib Dib Dob Fish Tricycle!
Age of eagles can be played using any size base provided both sides are the same.

The reccomendation in the rule is 3/4 inch X 1 inch for infantry, with four figures to a base. (Assuming 15mm figs here BTW)

Brits can be 1 1/8th inch by 1 inch to represent the line of two ranks

Cav 1inch X 1inch with two figures in one rank.

Better to find out what the other guys use.

Blucher, again anything you like provided both are the same.

The rules state a BW as 3inches. Most of us are using 80mm ( but that's for 6mm)

I don't think anyone was planning to rebase their 15mm
AoE bases just need to remember that its frontage is 3/4", if you are playing F&F its the other way around


At one of my (too) rare visits at the club we played Blucher, and as a 15mm basing discussion occured, I tried to summarize it, see thread:

Unfortunately I only come a couple of times a year to the club, and I haven't got many updates. It appears that 6mm became the preference (note that I have not painted for Blucher yet!!).

=> I'd welcome examples of 6mm basing for Blucher (or others) in the form of photos! Cool
