I may have said a few posts ago that I didn't know which scale to go for this period. I've now had a chance to get some paint on the 6mm figures and have gone with the layout you see in the photos. I think this is a great comprise between having formed and unformed units. I think each base can represent a battalion with its skirmisher screen and therefore the 4 bases I've done makes a brigade, which is something I've never had in this scale before. I think this might reflect my changing views on painting an d scale. In the past I liked 28mm figures because I could take my time and hopefully do a good job on them, but since I've started with Spencer Smiths I've become more focused on just getting the figures on the table. 
I've put the 28mm FPW figures on eBay as I had not enough for a decent battle, merely skirmishes, and that's not what the FPW is about for me. Now all I need to do is decide on the rules..
