The size of the base and shape of the base and number of figures on it are irrelevant to game play in AQMF. Those are simply aesthetic choices because the AQMF rules refer only to the base being in contact or not. Individual figures on the base are not counted up as is done in Napoleonic and Civil War games where the strength is counted by number of figures.
Relax and don't get stressed over things that don't matter. Play the game and enjoy it.

I never felt infantry was useless. Tripods can only ignore them at their own risk and if they shoot at infantry they aren't shooting at tanks or artillery. The successful tactic for the humans has always been to give the Martians too many targets. This means engaging with everything at once. Infantry out in front as blips, longer ranged guns put behind the infantry that will force the Martians to come close to the infantry in order to get in range of the guns. If they pause to deal with the blips, then they are getting pounded by tanks and artillery. If they move to engage the tanks and artillery, the infantry can launch assaults. And infantry in trenches or bunkers can be amazingly hard to kill.
