Hi all, new to Impetus and doing a re-base (love the multibase), and need some advice.

For my Galatian army, re the fanatics who usually form large units, is it ever worth running em as a small single base unit? I have a spare base (5 bases of fanatics total).

If not, I can easily spread the models from the spare base among the warrior units, etc.

Many thanks.

for large units I use a mix of single and permanent double-based. Much of the time you'll just use them as the double but the singles are occasionally useful as an option and very helpful for replacing those large units that have lost their rear base.

For pikes I always used a single and a double
