ACW Temporary Rebasing

My 15mm ACW armies are based for Fire and Fury.  That's 1" wide and 3/4" deep for infantry (three figures), 1" by 1" for cavalry (two figures) and 1" wide and 1 1/2" deep for artillery (one gun, two crew).  With the club there is an opportunity to use the ACW 1861 rules for a strategic level game and it's just a matter of looking at some basing options.

The first test was would my magnetised bases hold to steel paper through the printed label?  

Next was to try it on for size.


Not quiet.  Labels will need to be increased in size as my guys ain't for slimming down.

The level of adhesion is good.

The steel paper was from a the beginning of a roll and was quiet curved, but will flatten out.

Looks promising!

    1. The steel paper has also been very useful in making up movement trays using old CD cases (the soft plastic kind) as backing.
