I just completed painting my first infantry regiment for the French Wars of Religion. However I am at a loss as to how the figures should be based. I am using 40mmx40mm bases. The problem is that some of the figures’ pikes get in the way. Any suggestions?January 5, 2019 at 4:28 pm #152785
Hi Mark, are you referring to the Warlord Games, Wars of Religion box set? I’ve not used this set, but in common with most pike figures at charge or port you probably need to stagger the figures to get them to fit.
I uploaded a quick pick of some of my work-in-progress TYW pike as an example. This is a 40mm x 40mm base.

Yes, I am referring to the WG boxed set. The figures are gorgeous but difficult to base!January 6, 2019 at 3:55 pm #152813CorsoParticipant
You could go for a wider base to make the models fit properly, maybe 80x40mm ie the same space as 2 40x40mm bases next to each other? With a wider frontage you could place the pikemen better.
Hope this helps!January 6, 2019 at 4:40 pm #152817January 6, 2019 at 7:08 pm #152820
Well done for sorting it out. That’s a very nice looking unit.January 6, 2019 at 7:53 pm #152822
Thanks to you both for your suggestions and kind remarks. My only problem now is getting other figures to match. These Arsenal figures appear to be closer to “True 25mm” so they will not match well with 28mm figures. Have you tried the other figures in the Wars of Religion range? Are the mounted Gendarmes the same scale as the foot?January 7, 2019 at 2:00 pm #152964
Sorry Mark, not seen them together to be able to give a view on comparative sizes.
