I do DBA with 6mm using 40mm wide bases.  With infantry and cavalry, I put 4 times as many figures, usually in 2 ranks.  For instance, a hoplite element (base) would have 2 ranks of 8 figures instead of 4 figures of 15mm size.  For most kids of chariots, artillery and elephants I have 2 models on a base (I could only fit one scythed chariot on a base).

For normal (12 elements per side) DBA games I prefer my 15mm armies.  However, for BBDBA (DBA with 36 elements per side) I much prefer the 6mm armies.  When I do a new 6mm DBA army, I go for 36 bases per side.
