After deciding on figure scale, I gathered the needed materials.

Figures:
Old Glory 15s - I chose packs for a Late Crusader Army (stock #'s CR1 thru CR10). I included extra packs of foot and command for the few extra poses that can be mixed with the rank-and-file, offering troop variety.
Bases:
Renaissance Ink Wargame Bases - "Thin Plastic with Magnet" looks great with 15mm
Flocking:
Renaissance Ink Medium Flocking Gel - this will look very good as grass for 15 or 25mm.
Tools:
A rattail and flat file, wire cutters, Gale Force 9 superglue.
Books & Reference:
DBA 2.2
