2mm will never be as visually pleaseing as 15mm or 25mm but on mas they look very good. They are very quick and easy to paint.
Believe it or not it is possible to differentiate troop types. I also aid this by how I base. I base on bases for 15mm. For long bows I use 3 x 2mm bow blocks. 2 blocks form the front rank with the 3rd behind, supposedly the Captains company. I do the reverse for Crossbows. Dismounted Knights/Blades are 4 blocks or 2 blocks of men at arms. Horse are obvious what they are and I base those eith 2 or 4 blocks to a base. Artillery are 2 to a base.
Generals unit is marked by a command group in front of the troops on the base and a flag.
They are fiddly but it is a very good way of trying out a new era.
As i said I use bases sized for 15mm figures and I fight on a 2' x 2' table.
For terrain I use my normal hills, normal wood bases but without the trees. Normal rough areas. Enclosures I use pipe cleaners painted green.
BUA is represented by a couple of the small cottage models sold as collectable ornaments. Callec I believe the LiLiput range. Bit over sized but hardly noticeable.

My own are 15mm bases with twice as many 6mm figures on them. 6mm on mass are very effective but I remain unconvinced about 2mm. They seem really small and are a real problem for my aging eyes; so small that 0mm seems a viable option.
