Having said that I might go for 16-20 fig battalions for a test run just to get some soldiers on the table. I'm not sure I could go for 12, it would start to look a bit thin for me.

The biggest thing for me is getting a good game and when restricted for space, smaller units work best, Now of course it is simple enough to split a 24 figure unit into 2 12 figure units as the need arises.
