Hope it's ok to post already
What is recommended:


Unit type                  Base Width              Base Depth               Approximate Number of 10mm figures     
Air Power                     50mm                      50mm                                   1 plane on a stand
Artillery                        50mm                      50mm                                   1 gun + crew
Command                   50mm                      50mm                                   As appropriate
Infantry + Cavalry       50mm                      25mm                                            5
Vehicles                       25mm                      50mm                                            1 (Cars/Halftracks/Tanks)


Personally i use:
- 50x50 for CO and 40x40 for hq, to tell them apart easily
-40x40 for artillery
-30x50 for tanks as some are a tight fit on a narrower base

Doesn't really matter that much, the difference is small!

CO - 40mm x 40mm
HQs - 25mm x 25mm
Infantry - 50mm x 25mm
Support Weapons - 25mm x 25mm
Artillery - 25mm x 50mm (or larger as required)

The smaller foot print HQs mean that they fit in trenches etc along with the infantry, ditto the support weapons. It works for me and IIRC these were the base sizes that the author of BKCII used.

I used 50mm wide for everything except command.   For CO I have 60mm round and for HG 40mm round.   FO and FAO are on 30mm round.

No fixed base sizes in the rules - just recommendations - but what the folk have posted above gives you a good idea for 10mm.
