Not quite the answer I wanted......
But I appreciate the reasoning. I'm sure once I have massed sufficient troops for a reasonable-size game it will all become clear. Thanks for the comprehensive reply.
Barry, you seem to go for six-figure squadrons made up into units of either 12 or 18 men. is there any reason why one should not field the odd 9-figure unit? I just like the look of three bases with the flag in the middle. Is there anything in the rule mechanics that would suggest this is a bad idea...
Guys - that was quick - many thanks.
Barry, any source suggestions for French dragoon uniforms and flags. Most of those that i can find are either in red facd blue or vice versa. Where do the greens and yellows come from?

Very helpful - I will get onto Redoubt. I think some of their ECW officers could be useful additions although they will need better heads than the loose ones supplied which seem overly small and rather "flat". Thanks again. Curassier
Abandoned drums as part of the vignette effect.
Is there any manufacturer that makes a drum separate from a drummer?
Regards. Keep us posted on the rules Barry, the taster in the War Chest look great.
Good news on the Napoleonic rules as well. Can you give us a heads-up Barry on the unit sizes used in your Napoleonic games? Nice also to see the picture of some Calpe figures in action. I have some of these myself. They are one of the best kept secrets in Napoleonic wargaming - a range of extraordi...
