Troop Cavalry movement trays

I purchased some MDF trays from 'The Gaming Guy' and adjusted them to fit 4 instead of 5 25x50mm bases (28mm scale). I cut some spare Renedra bases to make the in-between bases bit and I also hacked an angle onto the square lip that they came with. The angle was so to make them roughly match my existing larger Renedra trays (and make the lip a little smaller).

A 'Troop' of Cavalry in Kings of War terms is 5 x 25mm by 50mm bases. It is acceptable to use 4 as long as the total unit footprint is clear. Using 4 instead of 5 means I can make my gaming dollar go a little further and perhaps make slightly larger armies. As you can see below I stick with a universal basing system of flock and the occasional rock.

Kings of War have a new Historical rulebook released near the end of September 2016. I am really looking forward to that (I pre-ordered a copy thru Mighty Ape). It has already given me inspiration to start getting back into painting/building my historical based collections again. Hopefully these trays fit into those lists options.

Cheers from Brendon

Enough for 4 'Troops'.
