In FOG Generals are based on 40mm x 40mm stands. I like the look of that. It differentiates the Generals from rank and file. Could this work for DBA? The only disadvantage/advantage I could see is for WB or Kn's who follow up and would not make conact with the retreating General, since he is pushed back 40mm instaed of the usual 30mm. Esthetically it looks more pleasing, and you can fit more (staff) next to the General.

There is something in the rules about double based elements of foot recoiling only half a base width. Mounted must pursue up to a full base width if required. As well, if a foot unit must pursue, it must advance up to 20mm (half a base width). So the short answer is "Yes. It will work."

Just push the base back the distance a "standard" base would recoil. Ignore the extra depth for gameplay purposes.

In DBA Generals are a specific troop type that varies with lists. They also count as one of the 12 stands.
The FoG concept would not work.

I think it would work amongst friends, but not with tournament players.

Generals can be mounted on chariots, elephants and command wagons, all based 40x40mm. Under the proposed 3.0, mounted have an option to retire a full Base Width.

My command staff have extra banners or standards but can have foot figures, officers, standard bearers and musicians on the same base as his "largeness"; only to make the stand distinctive and yet fight and move as mounted.
