Been wrestling with the thorny issue of basing, not a fan of sabots and want units I can use for both Black Powder and Sharp Practice, bit of a write up on the blog about it

I based mine individually, but I'm aiming at skirmish gaming.

I based these with Sarissa bases so that I could use them for Black Powder and also Tomahawks and Muskets <a data-flickr-embed="true" href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/81141589@N08/39499291431/in/dateposted-public/" title="nj vol 005"><img src="https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4685/39499291431_0bbf350e82_z.jpg" width="428" height="640" alt="nj vol 005"></a><script async src="//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Thanks but I am not a fan of the round bases added to sabots. I want my bases to be mini vignettes if I can with broken drums and wheels, discarded packs etc and logs poking out from under the snow. The sabots dont allow for that despite being a clever system.
