Thanks.

It looks like you have six mounted figures on a single base . . . and 12 foot on a single base . . . is this correct?

Jeff, actually the cavalry are mounted three on a stand and a unit has two stands on a movement tray. This allows you to form a line or a column. Infantry are mounted six figures on a stand with a unit having two stands on their movement tray. Again this allows both column or line formations.

Thank you, sir. The movement trays had me fooled.
