Hundred Years War Javelinmen

Skirmish bases with javelins
I have sworn I will not undertake a substantial re-basing effort because of the appeal of Impetus style bases, but...

A common troop type that appears in all of the various HYW Impetus lists are skirmishers with javelins. I have lots of skirmish stands with bows and crossbows (two figs to a stand on a 60mm by 25mm stand), but none with javelins. In order to have some available for my campaign, I pulled apart a pair each of three-figure stands of Breton bidets and Spanish light infantry and then mixed and remounted the figures two to a base on deeper stands. Voila - 3 units of skirmishers with javelins.
