My immediate plans when I first started this endeavour was to use 40mm round bases for prone figures.
However I've noticed that that does leave a lot of space around the figure. I can make this look decorative on the base, but in the end it means that a given squad or section will take up more space that may be necessary and may look somewhat disjointed.
I am just not sure...
Below are a couple of pictures showing two prone figures on a 40mm round and a 20mmx40mm rectangular. Which do you think looks better? Let me know in the comments!
