Not much hobby time this week but I'm still here. I haven't gotten far but I have started to replay the scenario as part of my effort to find a place and purpose for the 40mm mid 19thC lads.
|Trying out one new proposal: 12 x 40mm infantry or 6 cavalry in a single rank.|
OK I was once influenced by George Jefferys' scale arguments and played WRG's 1685-1845 rules which had 1 rank battalions. I deployed my currently planned 12 figure units in a single rank. It still looked fairly good but I had trouble fitting 6 battalions on the table. I decided to just try what I have been preparing for the grid but off grid.
|and the current planned standard: 12 x40mm figures in 2 ranks or 4 cavalry in 1.|
(Note: For this game I am using a 3" length rather than 60mm. The visible grid is 4" which would have been a good "length" now that I think of it....)
