I mount four per base, on a (roughly) 1.5" x 1" stand for Powered
(Scotia Micromodels). My line/militia inf. is from Irregular, it comes
ready based, four troopers on a 1" x .5" base (very roughly).

The Irregular guys are in a line abreast type thing, one deep across the
base. The PA teams I've mounted in varied staggered formations, two
back, en echelon, etc.

Specialist teams I mount two per base - this includes APSWs, arty
observers, GMS/L teams, LAD teams, Inf. Mortar teams...again, the
Irregular minis come ready based, cast right into their base. The Scotia
hvy. wpns. teams are also ready based, most of them. The rest I've based
on (again, roughly) 3/4" x 3/4" bases.
