I am planning on basing my 10mm figures using 15mm basing conventions.

If any of you all do this, how many figures do you put per base?

Don't play HOTT, but I've seen 10mm based for Warmaster.
They fit two ranks of foot, 5 each on a 40mm wide base for a total of 10 figures, They get 4 cavalry in a single row on the same base, I think. SO that would be the most you can get onto a base.

Some folks use the same number of figures as specified for 15mm; for example, 4 Spearmen per element of Spears.

My preference is similar to Vincent's. I put 10 to 12 infantry figures in two ranks, cavalry 6 or 8 figures in two ranks, and artillery two guns per element.

Very nice, Ivan. I really like the knight wedges.

Hmmm. Thanks for your input! I'll try to make a decision once I get back to my miniatures.
