Stuck, weighted, left to dry my first [the test] stand. Its not stuck together in a single lump but the upright troops have a habit of not standing properly soldierly upright in neat ranks. Maybe when I get to stick them on mounting board that can be sorted out with a little help from Mr PVA.
Using scissors to cut out the white bits is taking an age - me thinks craft knife will work better and be quicker and neater to.

The book I got (War of the Roses) Infantry, guns and cavalry Stands are 42 - 43mm wide and no more than 50mm deep best if 40mm because of overlapping the mounting board. Gun bases will need trimming down but it is expected to wrap the base around the mounting board.
Others will have to say if the other books use different sizes.
So just call it 40mm and it fits in with many other rules sets out there
I have discovered something I like doing..... whilst waiting for dinner to finish cooking
and I have almost finished the first sheet of these
just got to get some mounting board for the bases from either The Range ;cheaper] or Hobby Craft [lot more expensive] on Saturday and I have custody of the car for the day (well unless Smaug's plans change and I have to take her to Oxford).
The next sheet has already had the reinforcing PVA behind the long weapons, and has been left to dry ready for tomorrow. When I will score fold lines and cut out ready for glueing front and back halves together and leaving it to dry over another night. Next day start cutting out and repeat until I have done enough for a table top force - whatever size that needs to be.
I know a few of us have the book so should I concentrate on doing models for one side only as some others will do the other side? tango I will print you off some pages so that you can have a go. Does comstar want a few sheets as well?
Now that I'm at the point where I can stick the flag on the question is which rose should I do - Red or White? I'm assuming that someone(s) will do the other force so that we can give this a go.
Note: if you follow the artists advice (like I did) and cut out between the legs for the front rank there is not a lot left to stick to the flip up strip behind their feet.
2 pics showing a little progress and this is now about 1,500 points for Kings of War - Historical
assuming each 3 stands is 100 points but I only need 2 stands to a base for a 100 point troop, so it can be 2,000 point force when mounted on spigot bases.
Why, because the stands are 40mm wide and 100mm is the spigot width - No i'm not cutting stands in half when other rules also use 40mm frontages. Beside my 2 stands are 24 2D infantry 'models' and the book says I only need 10 to the base.
