Hi, this is my first post here. I'm just getting into Ancients and Medieval miniatures and plan to do 10mm figures on 40mm bases. Because I'm just getting started, I'd like to keep my basing fairly flexible so that I can try different rule sets along the way.

I see that Warrior uses pretty standard basing conventions, but have a couple of questions:

1) All things being equal, I'd prefer to use ADLG basing conventions, just to minimize the number of separate bases. Would this be feasible with Warrior rules? I suppose I could have a few Warrior-style bases for each unit type so that I could use them to the extent necessary. Any tips?

2) I might have overlooked it, but I didn't see any special basing rules for especially deep units such as Macedonian/Successor phalanxes. How deep should their bases be?

That's it for now, thanks in advance for any tips.

Hi,

You could also ask here; https://philonancients.blogspot.com (his contact email is on his profile page).

As he he has played both Warrior and ADLG he might be able to help answer your questions more fully.

No special basing for formations, thus something like a pike element would be typical Close Order foot basing.

Often people will "double base" pike elements since they rarely operate less than 2 deep.

Mostly ADLG and Warrior have the same basing, other than having deeper formations of infantry in ADLG on one base.

You will often find Warrior players basing infantry 2 stands deep (but not 3 or 4).

You want some 1 deeps for your infantry in order to expand out under certain circumstances, but 2 deeps are generally fine in many cases.
