I shall re-phrase my question: how do we calculate the average figures per squadron? The example works out the average to be FIVE, whereas I get SIX. I'm afraid I may not have been too clear in the original question.
Thanks for your patience,

I would round up, but the point is moot if guard class.
Once a unit has passed its test to charge
a 6 can no longer auto stop them in the next test. (baring casulaties to the unit) The second test is for receiving shooting casualites and merely a morale test and not a test to charge as they are in the action of charging.
So with a guard unit with 5 or 6 figures cannot fail to charge home, ie fail their morale test. 6 figures testing as guard roll a 6 minus 1 = 5 pass, 5 figures testing as guard roll a 6 minus 1 = 5 pass. A guard unit would have to have lost 2 figures before it has a chance to fail.
As I understand it, I am still wrapping my head around these rules as well.

I believe Barry picked 6 figures for looks
. If we went with numbers normal sqns would have 3 to 4 figures in them. Can you imagine a two sqn British regiment of 4 to 5 figures charging across the table top at a 18 man infantry battalion, doesn't look right. Reminds me of the rules for the Age of Reason with sqns being 2 figures charging a 12 man infantry regiment
