The Coat of Arms of Clan Montgomery - Scotland. Yes, that's a woman with the head of a savage in her hand, and an anchor. No clue what it means, but it's cool.

I like where I think you're headed with this ... I want to know the answer on this one as well.

Cards are 50mm by 75mm ... Not sure about the base size, but can't be much different

As I understand things, they are the same size.

Saw the thread, read it, posted to it, but wasn't sure that the bases and cards were the same. I'll take it that they are.

It is one of the "features" of this game system - the cards can act like the playing pieces. The miniatures on their stands are generally just a visual treat.

So by my calculations the bases are roughly 2" x 3" in size.

I'm thinking about buying a hex-grided map to use the miniatures with other game systems. It looks like the gamemats Ares will be releasing will not have any hex grid to speak of (one of the reasons I wanted them).

I'm presuming 2" hexes would be the way to go. 1.5" hexes would not be wide enough to accommodate the bases.

Thanks for all the responses!
