Yet for a legal tournament, they aren’t based right. My regiments are based 100mm x 100mm. The rules allow for only 100mm x 80mm. So my regiments are 20mm longer than they should be for the game.

Grumble… grumble… grumble.
Another quibble: The rules continue the old standard for having a 25mm miniature fit on a 20mm x 20mm base when building regiments.
Why is this even done anymore? Most figures produced now are 28mm “heroic scale”–they don’t fit on the 20mm x 20mm square base.
Fortunately, with Kings of War it’s the “footprint” of a regiment which matters far more than individual basing. In fact, individual basing can be nixed–this one of the best things I like about the game.
Still… I’ve got some decisions to make.
Maybe, however, rebasing my figures to a cohesive color scheme might be in order…
