Thanks for this interesting reply, I shall certainly look into the Perfect Captain rules. With Lion Rampant we fight bigger battles than skirmishes. We simply use our multiple based figures, so, for example 4 bases of 8 figures per base represents a large unit such as yeomen or sergeants but only two bases for a men at arms of bidower unit. We don't worry about facing or the 3 inch rule and it gives the feel of a nice big battle that is very playable.
Surprised that nobody else has replied - obviously, a topic that is less interesting to people than I thought!
