What is a good amount of figures per player in SP? Looking at getting some forces together for the Alamo.

We generally give a player 4-6 groups for games of this kind.

Minimum would be a Unit of two Groups(16 to 20 Figures total. A lot depends on how many players you have. For one player per side, you could easily go 9 to 10 Groups per player. Game works best for two players per side and Extra Crispy's suggestion above would be right on for that.

A close order group of 30+ is not more intellectually troubling than one 6 sk group. Provided you have unit stands/ magnets😜.

More independant groups strain your game, not the figures number. Or rather leaders. Our fine member here who has wonderful games in GA(?) used a trick of not using the cards of the 1 class sub leaders in huge units till they get separated, but adding them to the main leader for shock recup.
It works fine with 4-7 independant groups/ leaders per side.
If to few the dice can take over skills.
