Why Unit Base Your Army?

A simple 25mm square bases simply doesn't have that much room, especially once you attach a figure, and once of the downsides of individual basing is that the little details can get lost within the mass of the unit. The best part of basing models as a unit, rather than individually, is that you can go above and beyond just adding texture and vegetation- you can making highly themed bases or creating dioramas within your army.
