About Hex Command Basing

Hex Command Gunpowder for skirmish level games are one stand of 5-7 figures on a 1×2″ representing a company, or two figures mounted to 1×1″ representing about 25-50 men. Generally the smaller bases are for skirmisher types.. riflemen, fusiliers and Indians because these operate in a hex by themselves; some types can have more than one stand in a hex but generally only one stand per hex is expected. Single figure stands are characters used in the Adventure game. In some cases two figures might be based onto 1×2″ stands that appear more attractive and spread out than a 1×1″ base because they operate in open order and this looks more appropriate than a 1×1″ stand.

For artillery, it was expected that one stand of gun and crew represented two cannons but this is in review; it may be that one gun may represent one cannon.

It is currently in review if Militia based on 1×1″ stands can operate more than one stand per hex; it could be that some militia can, others cannot and therein lies the nuance of this era. The characteristic of being able to form a larger group is a question of training and this may be a commander ability rolling on the Tactical value of the Command Valuation system series of numbers.
