When I re started this blog it was my intention to build around the old 'Airfix' Bruce Quarrie rules. I then looked at WRG but didnt like the basing style required. So I'm back to the BQ rules. The organsiation suggested for the 1815 campaign in the book is:
British Line battalion = 20 figures in 10 companies. Inc 1 grenadier and 1 light co.
French line battalion = 24 figures in 6 companies of 4, inc 1 light and 1 grenadier co.
This is very managable and gives an accurate representation I feel?
I will try to scan some of the pages from this lovely old book, its my first edition from 1974 and is full of lovely old photos in b/w. The other book is from 1971, and again is a first edition now falling to bits!
Meantime I'm adding 4 more figures to each battalion to make them up to 20 each.
