First off, got my copy of Maxamillion in the mail and I am very impressed after reading through the rules a few times. The rules seem straight forward, fastplay and seem to "make sense", I look forward to trying them out on the tabletop! I think I found a good set for my Mikes Models' Huguenot and Catholic armies (now I just need to paint and base them!).speaking of basing, I figured I would try to stay within the same basing requirements of DBR for flexibility's sake. My question for my fellow TMPers is, "how are reiters, formed shot and gendarmes based for 15mm DBR?". I am interested in # of figs per base and recommended depth of bases. Thanks!

Gendarmes would be lancers in DBR, so 3 per base @ 30mm deep

Reiters would be pistols, 4 per base if (S) (O) or (I). 3 per base if (F). Same base depths as above

Shot are 4 per base @ 20mm deep

My copy of Maximillian (free to Pike & Shot society members back in the early 90s), gives similar numbers and base depths for the cavalry and 15mm dase depths for the shot ('missile foot')

Just got my set. Since they only cover 1400-1550 there's a lot more period flavor, with pikes up to 4 ranks deep and reiters 3 ranks.

My crew has a Swiss and a Burgundian army that need to try these out. We also have an Italian Condottiere army.

They also have interesting possibilities for an Ottoman army. There's a infantry type called forlorn hope, double-pay soldiers armed with a mix of melee and missile weapons. Janissaries are classed as forlorn hope.

The only thing I have mixed feelings about on the basing involve the Forlorn Hope.I noticed that Jannissaries are classed this way,and it means a 30mm depth.However,in DBR they are classed as shot,which means 20mm depth.So this means that my FH willl be based at 20mm,but nothing crucial to the game,I would think.

Ooop,a second look revealed that FH can be based on 20mm depth,so problem solved.
