Frankish Franks!

Those Early Byzantine have to fight someone so I decided to get some units of Franks painted up with a cursory eye in the direction of Casilinum/Volturnus 554 CE in mind.

Although these smaller Foundry Perry sculpts are smaller then your average 28mm miniature today and could have suited a 40mm x 40mm base, I made the decision to mount them on 40mm frontage by 60mm deep bases. The reasoning it twofold. First, the sculpts are very animated with a real sense of forward momentum and I wanted to conserve this feeling on the bases. The deeper bases allowed for a little more spacing. I hope that this displays my intention. The second reason is quite a simple; as they will be fighting my Early Byzantines I thought I would just stick to the same basing convention. Having said that, in the future if I need to stretch the basing convention for a particular unit, I will probably do so.

Here are a few snaps of the unit from various angles.
