http://saskminigamer.blogspot.co.uk/p/basing.html. Infact it was this website that really got me thinking about Fantasy again...thanks Tim. For me an army has to look like an army and Tim's approach of doubling the numbers of figures recommended really appealed to me. HotT recommends bases of three figures very similar to DBA, but an army of thirty figures was never going to sit well with me. Tim's idea of doubling these figure amounts and base depth won me over after looking through his amazing blog. Now an army can look like an army with 60 + figures.
These bases could even fit the LOTR rules with a pinch, with each base being counted as a company.The imagination behind HotT as really got my brain juices flowing and I love the idea of coming up with your own troop types and stands to fit with the army type. On such idea is a 'sneaker' base for the Dwarf army being a Dwarven adventure party. I loved this idea and so have started to put one together complete with Hobbit.
