I am starting a collection of Trident minis for the French and Indian War, aiming to use "Song of Drums and Tomahawks", so skirnish level. I am torn between 30mm bases and poker chips. I actually prefer the latter, but fear the footprint created might be too big. Thoughts?

I base my Trident AWI on 1 inch fender washers for the infantry and 30mm x 60mm for mounted. A few of the wider stance foot hang off the washers a bit, but not too badly.

I use Litko round 30mm bases for foot figures. For me, they are large enough without too much 'dead space' and easy to move. We have been playing 'skirmish' too.
