But what about the look on the table or on parade. Bigger bases will give more space for arranging the minis, so that they really give the Impression of an Regiment or battaillon in line or column. In this case My favorite at the Moment is three 45x30 mm bases per regiment.
Most rulesets go for more and smaller bases. IMHO 3 bases are enough for showing formations and losses can be counted by dice or Marker. The rules I will use are Black Powder, Field of Battle and Honors of War.
