I'm coming back to the hobby after 45 years away, that was before basing was used by most people! I'm drawn to 15mm figures. I assume the rules are written for 25/28mm figures, so here are some newbie questions. If I use the standard size bases, would it be an idea to put a few more models on each - to make things look better. Would it be necessary to covert all measurements, I know some people use 15mm figures for other sets of rules and just use the same distances.

Thanks for the add to the forum

The rules are written with 15mm in mind and all distances, basing, scale and game mechanics work best with 15mm.  To use 28mm figs and have the game look 'right' you'd need to increase all distances, probably doubled.  All of the playtest games used 15mm collections.

The basing is 40mm wide per stand with two ranks of 4 figures each (or two half sized stands if you have stuff based up for Napoleon's Battles / Age of Eagles) so its reasonably standard in that respect.
