Wargaming is all compromises.  Bases are really no more than game counters but you can certainly base figures so that frontages match a ground scale, but not depth, which becomes even more problematic with cavalry and artillery.  I work on a basis of one figure = ten men and mount my 10mm Pendraken marching 7YW figures on a 20mm wide by 30mm deep base, nine figures in three ranks.   It is a compromise, of course, but it looks about right with four to six bases to a battalion - which as pointed out elsewhere is as important as anything.
