The first of (hopefully) many 1/6000 scale WWI ships. These are Figurehead miniatures. In order to minimize the base length (and thus minimize the conflict between ground scale and figure scale) the cast bases provided by Figurehead are not used. The sheet styrene bases are 11 mm wide and 3-4 mm longer than the ship, which is offset to port to leave room for a label on the starboard side. Each base also has a 2mm diameter rare earth magnet embedded in it facilitate pickup and transport. Destroyers and torpedo boats are based 4 on a 30x25mm stand. Each stand will initially represent a flotilla, but that may be changed to a half flotilla if enough are eventually painted.
