I used the same size bases as my infantry units use, so 3/4" by 3/4" square. On each base, I put three figures total. Some bases have 2 figures firing and one either wounded or fleeing. Others have 1 firing and two either wounded or fleeing. The rest have all three either wounded or fleeing. This way I can represent 1, 2, or 3 "casualties" (whatever that may represent in the rules I am plaing) to a unit by adding a single casualty base to it.
I originally planned to do the same thing but with a total of 4 figures per base, so it could represent up to 4 casualties. Unfortunately, the casualty figures and fleeing figures take up a lot of space, so I thought the bases might look a little crowded with 4 figures. These emptier bases will look more ragged and stand out more compared to the regular infantry bases. Still, I think they might look better if I tried to fit 4 figures per base, considering my regular infantry bases are packed pretty tight with 8 figures.
I will most likely be using these bases to play the Warlord Games rules, Black Powder. You can read my review of these rules here. In Black Powder, most units will have a stamina of 3, so they can only take a maximum of three "casualties". If I need to use these for other games, such as Field of Battle where an infantry regiment can take up to 4 points of Unit Integrity loss, I can always use multiple bases to add up to the correct amount.
Here are some pictures of the single casualty bases.
Here are the bases representing two casualties.
Finally, the bases representing three casualties.
Also, the "Casualties & Tabletop Markers" pack comes with a limbered gun carriage. I decided to put a spare cannon barrel on it and use it as an abandoned gun to mark a casualty to an artillery unit.
The "Casualties & Tabletop Markers" pack also comes with 4 ammo boxes. I have no particular use for these, but I painted and based some anyway. Perhaps I could use it as an objective marker or something. Any suggestions?
The "Casualties & Tabletop Markers" pack also comes with 9 dead horses, which I will combine with more of the wounded and fleeing men to make some casualty bases for my cavalry units. Next up, however, will be some Confederate Infantry casualty bases. Then I'll have to take some pictures of these casualty bases placed next to some of my Infantry units to see how they will look in practice. Let me know what you think.
