The Re-basing dilemma

After much discussion Bruce, Greg and myself are moving to a new basing convention, 50 x 50 bases so we can place the officers, NCOs and musicians in the correct positions in a battalion. I also has the added bonus of protecting the paint work a little better (Bruce's army is based for WRG, mine for British Grenadier and Greg just made up his own which was 50 x 50!) it also has the added benefit of being able to use our troops at a pinch with might and reason.

With this basing we are also increasing the size of our batns from 24 to 28 (the extra officers and musicians) so while I am doing this I will also be doing some touch ups of Bruce's Prussians and my French, British and Americans also adding new GMB flags to Bruce's Prussians and 3 new batns of guard! Still not sure which way to go with the light infantry though, some pondering to be done I think!
