here we go again- the basing dilemma!
i have both Union and csa armies in 15mm ready to be based and have a number of rule sets ( regimental f&f, johnny reb, across a deadly field, guns at gettysburg and Pickett's charge). I should also state that what I have based is in single rank but that's not a hindrance/ deal breaker for me.
it looks like there are two basing conventions - single rank ( eg 25mm wide by 20mm deep for 3 infantry ) or double rank (25mm square for 4 inf in two ranks).
a number of rule sets state that basing doesn't matter but I'm not sure..
so for all you acw gamers out there, which basing is the most popular and offers the most flexibility?
I am keen to try Pickett's charge rule set as it seems to capture the historical nuances while allowing you to game large battles. Can single basing work with this set?
so any advice/ input will be welcome!
cheers and happy new year to you all
