Tactics without Grid

Can't you do the old "small feet" trick with your art (I'm thinking in terms of sprites, so this question might be horribly outdated) so that the base fits into the grid but the body isn't similarly limited? Usually, the body was turned about 45deg so that they didn't "share space" if 2 critters were on adjacent spots on the grid. I can see screenshots in my head, but I simply can't bring up the name of the game that did that, sorry.
Of course, in the battle of artistic integrity and coding realities, it might be easier to just shoot the artist.
Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.
