Welcome, far4ngn. Regarding your basing question, it depends on the pose. 4 figures on a 25mm x 25mm base can be a squeeze - but most of my ACW figures are 4 to a base. I used this base size because my Pendraken figures were already based like this plus 1 inch (25mm) is the base width for infantry in the Fire & Fury ACW Rules. If doing it again, I might consider 30mm x 30mm - but I won't be doing it again! Some photos of mine. Most show 4 to a base but one also shows 3 to one base (these are advancing figures and I try not to have too many weapons hanging over the edge of a base).

Thanks guys...my logon name is far4ngn, you may be wondering why its from an old 80's VW add meaning fahrvergnugen meaning driving enjoyment lol.

In 10mm I've standardised on 4 figs to 20x20 and the few 28mm I now have fit nicely onto a 40x40.  For 15mm my old rules and I mean old are all around the 20-25x25....anyway after much thinking I've started to rebase my PP figures...

My first unit of 15mm AWI on 30x30 in 4's and I'll do the same for my WWI Germans and Belgians... can someone advise if its 4 per base or 3 please.  MG's on one 30x30.

Paul. thank you for that, appreciated.
It makes a difference.
It is good that this forum can be a grown up type forum with names.  I will urge all forum members to have an everyday first name that we can use. I really like meeting new gamers and a name makes it more  grown up.

Pretty sure itís not that important how many figures are on a base, especially as SB is a gridded game and it is the number of bases that counts. In fact I play it in 10mm with 3 infantry on a 30 x 20 base. My 15mm figures are used in a company based game and are on 50 x 25 bases.
