The outer lip on the unit trays required gluing on to the base which was no problem. After that dried I carefully angle cut the edge so they match my existing unit trays. Sand was glued on the edges as well prior to paint and flock.

|Fireforge Mongol horses. Some on 50mm square bases.|
During my prep for the Painting Challenge I realized I was a little short on Cavalry bases (25 x 50mm) but I had a few 50 x 50 bases. Looking at my Cavalry regiment trays that I had made in the past to accommodate 8 on a unit size for 10 it is actually legal to use a minimum of 6 miniatures on that Unit size in the Kings of War rules. For a Troop (5) three is also acceptable.
A light bulb went off in my head to make a few Calvary bases with one miniature on a 50 x 50 base.
Another economic way to make my collection stretch out to gain more units. I think this is also well suited to units that are classified as a 'Skirmish' unit in the KoW historical rules. Skirmish units do not block 'Line of Sight' so a unit with less figures and more space suits this rule in my opinion.
The square base is also great for the occasional horse on a bigger angle rather than the disciplined straight ahead usual way of basing.
Anyway if that is too many words here is a Perry Knights MOSH PIT!
