How to make prussian brigade at Blenheim.

Post by Gunfreak » Fri Oct 09, 2020 9:43 pm

The prussian cavalry brigade at Blenheim consisted of.

3 cavalry/cuirassier regiments each of 3 squadrons for a total of 300 each.
1 dragoon regiment of 3 squadrons total 300
And a dragoon regiment of 160

Total 14 squadrons and 1360 men.
I first planed on doing each 300 man regiment as a single BLB squadron.
That gives 4 squadrons, and I would use the 160 man unit also as a squadron to even things out.
For a total of 5 BLB squadrons, does this seem like the correct strength for a 1300 strong brigade.

I suggest you use some "artistic license" and put the units on the Table as you see fit and count them on your sheet how strong they really are. I think to remember that we used that scheme in RtE as well, for the same purpose.
„Macht Euch Euren Dregg alleene“

"Sort your filth out by yourself!" The King of Saxony Friedrich August III., at his abdication 1918, referred to the quarrels in the parliament and the squabbling within the provisional government.
