Could anyone (I guess ValleyGames, specifically) inform me about:

the dimensions of the miniatures? (Bigger is better, except if they take up too much space on the board!)

Also, are the initiative/whatever values on the miniatures? (Probably not.) If not, how is that kept track of? Is there a place to attach the cardboard general? Or... ?

Just considering whether or not to order from ValleyGames. Thanks!

Canis, if you look closely at the centre image, you can see that the generals are on plastic stands that have 2 spaces at the generals' feet for 2 small stickers to be adhered. I was informed by Valley Games that the stickers will have the general's values so the 2 values will be present on each general.
 

On their old webshop site Valley had an example of a miniature general with the stickers applied. The generals and their bases appear to have changed somewhat since then (the new bases are bigger/sturdier), but the principle is the same.

Rnijholt is correct.

Those brown bases are part of each general. The look we were going for was a sturdy, almost chess-like piece. The footprint of the generals isn't all that big, but the base is quite tall (thick).

Yes, there will be stickers for each general's base; just make sure when you stick them on that you carefully note which general gets which sticker (there's now only one Hannibal and one Scipio).

Additionally, there will be a sticker "band" for the base itself; essentially a wrap-around sticker. This will have the general's name, and a splash of colour.
