I also learnt this approach way back when. I tend to either visualise a series of 12" like newsun mentioned, or more often than not how many blocks of Orcs it is.

When charging with my Orcs I know they are 25mm bases, I know they have 4 ranks (for example) so the unit is 100mm or 4" deep. Therefore if something is more than 2 blocks of Orcs away from them they wont be able to charge it.

thats how i learnt how far my dwarfs could charge, because 4 ranks of dwarfs is 3", double it and you have 6", then times that by 3 to get 18", the old organ gun range. i never over shot my organ gun with the old range.

It's a nice formula but i don't need it. Once shot a Oldblood with a hellcanon at 46,5" range, spot on. THAT's what I call canon-sniping! And really, there was no measurements or maths involved.
