I am currently collecting an Early Imperial Roman army, and would like some advice on basing up my commanders.
EIR may have centurions (minor commanders) lead each legionary unit. I haven't got the rulebook with me, but I think it is on p.34 where it says that units with leaders permanently attached may depict a commander figure in the middle of the front row... or words to that effect.
Now, does that mean that with a legionary unit of 5 elements each on square bases of 40 x 40mm, I should depict the centurion on a 40mm diameter round base and place this front and centre of my unit, or have a 6th 40 x 40 square base as that of the centurion...or something else entirely ?
I am minded to go with the 5 square bases and the 6th (the centurion) on the round base, but am happy to be told different.
The same question goes for the single unit of legionary equites alares that EIR can field with a centurion to command it; centurion on 50x50 mm round base ?
Thanks in advance for your advice.
