As my already painted figures are based and owing to the fact that I've not tried V&B yet I decided to cut simple MDF sabot bases for the figures to sit on.
|1st Austrian Division|
I've obviously yet to paint and label the bases but hey, it's a start. I've actually cut my sabots slightly bigger that the 3" (75mm) recommended in the rules and I settled on my bases being 90mm square. This was simply a matter of taste as it allowed me to fit either 12 x 1/72nd infantry figures or 4 x cavalry figures on each base without it looking too crowded while still leaving enough room for unit labels, disorder, rout markers etc. As far as I'm aware it won't make the slightest difference to the actual game .... Though I'm sure their are seasoned V&B players choking on their pipes as they read this heresy.

|2nd Austrian Division|
|1st Russian Division (still requiring artillery!) and a Russian Heavy cavalry Division (still requiring a Divisional Commander)|
Anyway, onwards and upwards....
