@Caratacus good to see you my old friend!
Initially I'm going to be basing for hail Caesar/pike and shotte. This would be 4 men to a 50mm square base. "Standard" if even such a thing exists, is 4 men to a 40mm base, but I find this doesn't give enough room if the figures have wider posing and shields.
I will be doing command stands as vignettes of 3-4 figures.
The kit is set up in such a way that you can get:
(PLEASE NOTE: IN ORDER TO SAVE ME CONTINUOUS SPELL-CHECK, I WILL BE REFERRING TO ARMS AND ARMOR IN GENERAL TERMS)
10 "elite" infantry with full body suit
10 medium infantry in the mesoamerican version of a gambeson (unspun cotton made into torso armor, then hardened with saltwater)
10 unarmored infantry
However: it does not give you enough shield for all the bodies (4 of 6). Ergo, some of these troops will have to be missile troops.
My intention is to build in 2 box increments, making 3 units of 20 each time.
These first 3 units will be 20 jaguar warriors, 20 medium Levy spearmen with shields, and then 20 archers.
