Following on from my post of yesterday I spent a little time assembling a couple of 18mm units for comparison purposes.
Infantry - the same unit in two scales....
....and the aerial view showing the ‘footprint’
The grid in the pictures is 4” across and you can see that the 18mm version sits snugly in it. This is important because it leaves sufficient space within the grid area for any terrain. It also means that I can use full sized units which, because they are using smaller figures, still preserves the all important mass effect.

A further refinement - and this is a personal choice - I would look to use model guns rather than the supplied cannons simply because they look better in my opinion.
I am now fully reconciled to using 18mm Wofun and in many ways it has made a number of ideas far more achievable - the fact that you get twice as many figures for the money is a powerful incentive as well as the fact that I can deploy full sized units within a grid area and still have space for terrain (I will be looking at 15mm scaled models for this).
As far as the 28mm collection is concerned the full break down of this is as follows:
8 x 48 figure infantry units (each of 6 x 8 figure bases)
8 x 24 figure cavalry units (each of 4 x 6 figure bases)
8 x guns and crews
2 x Dragoon Regiments (each of 12 mounted and 12 dismounted figures plus horse holders)
Again, should anyone be interested in this drop me a comment with an email address I will contact you to discuss further.
