Welcome to Gull's own Battleground Blog!
This is my personal space about YMG's Battleground: Fantasy and Historical Warfare miniatureless miniatures game. If you love miniatures wargames, but are put off by the expense in time and money of collecting and painting all those figures, this is the game for you! If you are unfamiliar with Battleground simply click on the tutorial link below and watch a quick sample combat. Next, click on the forum link and meet some really great folks who will be responsive and answer all your questions. If you are already familiar with BG:FW&HW this site is an adjunct to the forums where I put up my own brand of replays and and stuff that just wouldn't fit in the forum (but I'll post links!).

Simpler, yet better bases
The better basing solution. I have taken 1/4" hardboard (the same stuff that they make clipboards with) cut bases to 2.5" X 3.5" and attached an adhesive backed piece of felt. I have a friendly neighbor cut the hardboard with his tablesaw and I took a 10"x12" sheet of adhesive backed felt and cut it into 2" X 3" pieces. I centered the piece on one side and turned it over and sat a card on it. Done!
Now the cards are easily sat upon the bases, sleeved or unsleeved. Their backs can be looked at easily. The bases don't slide and can be left in place while the card is moved about so you can be certain of the original position.
