The latest addition to the 28mm Ancients Project is one Impetvs-sized stand of Aventine 28mm Triarii. As a test, I based these on the recommended Impetvs stand size and I quite like the look of an Impetvs-based unit. On the 120mm x 60mm base, I affixed 14 figures in two ranks. Given my much recorded affinity towards "one unit = one stand" gaming and no casualty removals, this test piece has pushed me to the precipice of rebasing to Impetvs standards.
The downside is that my basing will no longer be compatible with the locals. Given my figures have yet to see battle and Scott maintains a huge collection, that weakness could be dismissed.
The next test will be to try this basing scheme with either javelin or pilum armed troops in throwing positions. Hopefully with the Impetvs basing scheme, the problem I face with weapon overhang and stands not aligning to their neighbor properly will be relieved.
