Hi guys.

My brother and I decided to try one of older editions and build two armies from scratch as a fun project.
We need some information because we know little about pre-8th ed. period.
What are 'standard' army sizes in 4th/5th/6th ed.?
Which edition requires least minis to have a fun, mostly balanced game?
Is 6th ed. with Ravening Hordes ok for low point games?
