The bases are 40mm squares for four figures, based to Warhammer (I think), but only for convenience, as I have never played those rules and nor do I intend to, though I am sure they would give a reasonable, if not "quite right" sort of game. The rules we use were written by Roland at Stafford Games (aka Midland Wargames Centre) a few years ago to give us something to play with. This period/ theatre is crying out for a definitive set in my view, but there are many I have not yet tried (Forlorn Hope, Father Tilly, et al). Roland's rules are very old school and are crying out for a thorough threshing out and developing, which I keep threatening to do. They currently run to four pages of large print A4, which is a recommendation in itself! They have given us several good games, however, and stood the test at the Wargamer show last month.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy this second offering in this "series".

|Detail view of the other flag in the unit, lazily draped over its bearer's shoulder so more visible from the side than the front.|
|"Prepare for horse" judging by the formation.|
|Well equipped and lacking uniforms. The latter point at least is common to all my Imperialists, but not all units have armour. Some of them are not even organised on a 1:1 ratio!|
