You were asked – TMP link

When you base your figures, do you base them with a specific ruleset in mind, or do you base them so that they are useful for all rules possible?

23% (tie) said "I base my figures for a specific ruleset" OR "I base my figures to a generic scheme"

20% said "I single-base my figures."

14% said "I base my figures for visual appeal."

Me too single base per figure.

For a specific rule set, including my home-brewed rules.

Well, fortunately the three rules sets that I have used for my SYW all had nearly identical frontages. The only difference is that one used single rank stands and the other two used 2 rank deep stands, BFD. However, even the one using single rank deep stands had all firing done in two ranks.
