What's the biggest casting you'd normally use on a multiple-casting base? For me, my old 30's.

40mm bases of 3

54mm or 1/32 scale for some World War 2 fire teams

28mm, seeing as how those are my largest figures and many are multi-based.

54mm. In fact we played a game last week with several hundred 54mm figures on five figure bases.

As I only have a few figures over 15mm (vast majority of mine are 2-10mm) most are for skirmish games and so individually based but I do have some 20mm on multiple bases for VBCW.

Depends on what "normally" means here.

15mm is the largest scale where the majority of my figures are multi-based.

28mm is the largest scale were I've multi-based for "normal" figures rather than exceptions like heavy-weapon teams, but the majority of my 28s are single-based.
