Scale
Figures
1 band (stand) of figures equals 60-100 men. Retinue and Well-Wishers are to the lower end of the scale- Arrayed troops are to the higher end. Therefore, the Lancastrian army at St. Albans I (2000 men) can be somewhere from 20 to 33 bands- as that army was mostly riding retinues, closer to the higher number. A larger army of 10,000 men (which will include many arrayed men) can be simulated with 100- 120 bands.
Ground
1= approx. 15-20 yards. So the maximum long range of bow fire (about 300 yds) is 18 using light flight arrows. Close range should be about 8. Since our stands take up about 40mm, which is about 25 yards frontage, each stand can be thought to contain about 3 ranks of men with 20-30 files. So 2 ranks of stands can be about 5-6 ranks deep (of course, much thinner than the depths of the bases), which is the supposed tactical deployment depth of bill and bow units in the era.
Time
Time per turn is usually variable in most tabletop games. Each turn can be from a few minutes to a half an hour in duration.

A Crown of Paper - Wars of the Roses Campaign Rules

A Crown of Paper
Most campaign games covering the Wars of the Roses focus on the political side of the struggle between the various royal and noble factions, rather than the actual military campaigns. ACOP is an attempt to focus more on the actual activities of the hastily raised armies of these factions.
