Now, I must have miscounted because I found that when it came to the last infantry regiment, I had a number of figures spare, so I increased the number of figures per stand from three (for stands using Irregular figures) and four (for stands using Heroics Ros figures) to five figures per stand.
I've not always felt that the visual impact of stands with just three figures really matched my own expectations of what battles should look like. Of course when viewed form the perspective of the entire battle it has always looked fine, but getting down the level of the individual stands, it just looked a little sparse.
|Three of the infantry stands with five figures per stand.|
|The Corps command stand with an additional figure, and a vehicle, added to make the stand look busier.|
|An earlier iteration with just the three figures per stand.|
I recently bought the figures to complete two Russian divisions for the eastern front, but these were compiled using 1 x 3 figure Irregular base per stand. I am considering ordering that same volume again to put 6 figures (2 strips) on each base. Somehow that feels right for the Russian infantry.
