I'm looking through some OB's for Chickamauga here:
Trying to determine what is a large, medium or small unit.
Using the ES+ (effective strength plus officers)I decided units under 300 men should be small, 300-600 medium, and 601+ large. Under 100 men is a tiny unit. I'm not basing this on anything except what I thought of a unit's size in Johnny Reb II back in the old days…
Small units = 4 bases, regular = 5, large = 6. Tiny = some individually based skirmishers. 4 figures per infantry base.
Cleburne's division as an example: 57 stands and 3 artillery batteries. That's 228 infantry figures and the batteries, plus some individually mounted skirmishers for the tiny unit.
What do you think?
