The Great Russian Napoleonic Army Rebasing
« on: September 15, 2020, 06:50:06 AM »
Painting figures is really enjoyable but I think basing is a chore or a pain.
Re-basing is unspeakable but sometimes has to be done when your collection spans more than 30 years.
I just wrote a blog post about rebasing a Russian army to allow some of my older figures to blend better with the newer ones and match my baseboard
I am so glad that its over, it took weeks  >:( - https://valleyboyinnz.wordpress.com/





I cannot pretend to feel impartial about colours. I rejoice with the brilliant ones and am genuinely sorry for the poor browns. - Winston Churchill

Nice job.
I feel your 're-basing' pain. I recently started to re-base / reorganise my Crusades stuff for To The Strongest (to fit in the grid) on hand cut 4 mm ply - boy, was 4 mm ply a mistake.

Wow, you have a lot of figures! As for the older ones not looking that good, I find late in the game, the really lousy figures start looking pretty good if they aren't shot up yet.
And the glorious general led the advance
With a glorious swish of his sword and his lance
And a glorious clank of his tin-plated pants. - Dr. Seuss

 I feel your pain, I am going through the same thing, but in 28mm.  Thank you for the inspiration and fortitude to get the job  done.
