I'm looking at re-basing these figurines: anyone know the dimensions of the MiniArts bases here:http://www.miniart-models.com/?

As they're designed for 1/16th they may be too small for these 1/12th models... if so, any VFM alternatives (exact match with the old Airfix ones would be best if anyone has a stash of them?)

Just in case anyone was wondering re the host figures:
    Cuirassier: Lifeguard trumpeter
    Polish Lancer: Coldstream Guardsman
    Chasseur: Lifeguard trumpeter
    Dragoon: Lifeguard trumpeter
    Grenadier: scratchbuild (wooden armature + plastic wood plus various carvings in wood/plastic + stretched spue but with Napoleon's face and hands... CORRECTION: I've just recalled that due to his famous pose the model only had one hand, so maybe I got the other elsewhere or scratchbuilt it?)
    Landsnecht: Joan of Arc
    Pikeman: Oliver Cromwell (with Joan's spear)
    Artillery: total scratchbuild (wire armature + Das clay)

I also have an uncompleted scratchbuilt mounted Samurai which I'll dig out and post (I halted the project as I became stuck on the best way to model the laminated armour: my original idea was to use thin sheet metal and thread but getting the holes/lacing right was beyond me).

Renovating these is on hold whilst I concentrate on my 45 year-old scratch-build samurai http://uamf.org.uk/viewtopic.php?f=98&t=15328
