After deciding on figure scale, I gathered the needed materials.

Old Glory 15s - I chose packs for a Late Crusader Army (stock #'s CR1 thru CR10). I included extra packs of foot and command for the few extra poses that can be mixed with the rank-and-file, offering troop variety.
Renaissance Ink Wargame Bases - "Thin Plastic with Magnet" looks great with 15mm
Renaissance Ink Medium Flocking Gel - this will look very good as grass for 15 or 25mm.
A rattail and flat file, wire cutters, Gale Force 9 superglue.

As you can see, I have separated the figs into elements (labeled bags). I clean and base one element type at a time.

1 3kn - Command: Abelin, Marshal & Hospitaller
5 4sp - Jerusalem colors
1 3bw - no set color
2 4cb - no set color
1 3cv - Turcopoles
1 3kn - Hospitaller colors
2 3kn - Abelin colors
