As of late I have been toying with debasing my American Rev War collection. My other two armies are based four figures (two up and two back) per stand and six bases per infantry regiment/battalion. My rev war collection is based in six figures (three up and three back). Neither are done this way for historical reasons. For the War of 1812 its just because it looked good. For Crimean war its how the rules I use suggests. I based my Rev War stuff years ago for Loose Files and gave kept that system over the years. I have standard sized regiments and usually do not worry about actual regimental numbers as moral evans things out.

Yet another strange thought brought about by being a shut in for too long. In the past I have gone down this rabbitt hole with round bases for artillery stands or to mount my houses on bases. I think these are responses to having too much time to think about things. Now I am pondering rebasing one of my armies

So my question is should I change my Rev War collection to four figure bases and six bases per regiment? Why, because then all will be based the same (very orderly) and with the extra figures I can raise some additional regiments or skirmishers. Or just keep them the same as they have worked well all these years. If you can please let me know what you think.

Oh no! If I do rebase everything do I go with thick stands or thin stands? And where will I get the bases from? See, too much time in my hands. Madness!
