1/72 Trojan War Project: Testing Base Sizes

I am going to campaign the Trojan War in 1/72.  I was trying to decide between either 40mm frontage bases or 50mm.  Normally I prefer more models on a base than what either of these sizes will offer. However my tabletop space is 4' square and 3 of the corners have permanent (at least for the foreseeable future) setups on them. Memoir '44 on one corner, History Channel Chess Set next to it and then another corner for Battles of Westeros & Battle Cry.  I could pack everything up and leave the table free for larger battles and for armies with larger bases, but at any one time I have incoming models prepositioned there and I must also take into account model storage. It's much easier to store models mounted on 40mm squares.  However I have plenty of time to decide.  I might wait until I order some chariots to see how well they fit on these bases.  Might end up having to go for larger diorama bases.
