Hey there! Maybe one or two of you know that I've been doing quite a lot of WM commission work (http://warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=54370&page=21) in the past months. The customer wants me to put three cav minis on every base/stand/whatever you crazy WM folks call them. This never was a problem with mounted squires, grail knights and the like but now I have to deal with knights of the realm or what their name is and the two minis that come on every strip are overlapping a bit so clipping them apart is connected to lots of work of filing, sculpting and so on. The units could work the way I want if I put the standard bearer and champion on two different bases each so my question (as in the title) is:

Is it possible to have the standard bearer and the unit champion on different bases or does this lead to rules problems?

Thanks for your help guys!

unit standards are for show only
no such thing as unit champs
thus compose them as you want

but i think 3 cav strip per stand is too much
but you should consider 5 archers per stand rather than 4. looks bettter imo.

Thanks for your help. I still tend to mess up "stand" and "strip" here and there. What I meant was that I'm using three single riders on each stand.;)

i place three cavalry models on one stand to represent characters (the hero and his companion/standard/messenger) so i think 4 models (2 strips) per cav stand is better
