I'm wondering what the size of the plague monks should be that are pushing the Plague furnace should be? Could anyone share some experiences with them and what you use?

personally i run 25 and have then 5 wide at the front (including the furnace), i like this because my army is rather hordish and this leaves my unit more mobile and still hits hard enough to the front and keeps it's ranks. Other games i will run it 28-30ish and go 6 or 7 wide but i usually find this becomes easier to bait around or it gets stuck in the terrain (around here most tables i play on end up packed with terrain). I have read of some people running 40 monks but to me this is way too many points, i guess the dump the points in there to play points denial.

I often run 33 with a Furnace, for a 6 x 8 unit. That means I can have a Furnace and FC in the front rank and if I run another character in that unit I only have to displace one FC member.
I can save 42 points per unit by running 27 for a 6 x 7 unit, but I won't go any smaller than that.
