All those interested have the new figure amounts in their 'hand" so to speak.

At the distinct risk of splitting hairs, I believe we have the number of bases in the new draft rules, but not the number of figures...?

Any thoughts on whether this is a 2, 3 (or even 5?!) figures per base set, please?

Well I have based 270 Pirates & guns so if I donít use 90% of them then the new rules are not complete

Good question. I am not sure. How about 2-3 for a fighting base ( a normal 3x3 or 2p base)and single for officers (no idea  on base...1p).  that does not hep but I am aware of te dangers of being to fixed too young?

Stewart. That is a big landing party/away team.  Should overcome the port scum easily?

Tell us about your mat. Dimensions in hexes?

So I guess the question is: how have you based yours, Stewart?

I like the 2-3 / base + officers as singles idea - sounds very much as though we're going for a similar feel as in Western? Would mean that those folks who already have forces can use them, while newbies can go for the 2 per 2p coin concept and get up and running faster.

I like lots of figure so as the play test progresses those Pirates that donít measure up end up in the sales line and I am left with a core of successful veteran Pirates.

My mat is a nice blue (like my eyes) with complete  9 x 16 , 6 sided squares 4Ē side to side.
