Hi Wellington and welcome to the board.

Personally, I think that AB make the best Napoleonic miniatures. However, they are a bit larger than other makes, more like 18mm than 15mm, and are also the ...

Hi BuckGordon,

That’s indeed the direction it seems we are heading. Check out the “play testing” thread under core rules. Perhaps you have some input?

Hi Winterhorse, and welcome.

In my personal opinion, I don’t think we should define a particular groundscale at all, but rather go with the telescoping “what seems right” type of scale that FOW wor ...

Great miccog,

This looks good!

Concerning the cavalry:
How about having one medium base with 3-4 cavalry equal one squadron? If we at this stage define a cavalry regiment as having six squadr ...

Good points Darilian, and I think you’re right in many ways. There is no point, to my mind, of using the FOW mechanics to make a “classic” Napoleonic large-scale simulation, and, speaking only for mys ...

Sounds good Dillingham,

I have been meaning to re-base (and not to mention paint) some French line infantry onto FOW medium bases, but being swamped at work lately, I haven’t gotten around to it ye ...

Battalion level:

A unit represents a battalion, which is in this scale roughly equal to a FOW platoon. For now, I suggest that a battalion should be made up of six companies which would equal six m ...

I think it is a good idea to start some play testing with basic line infantry at this point, and Tadpoleon's ratings seem a good starting point to me.

I agree with Dillingham on this one too, but mainly because it seems that you are looking at brigade/corps level miccog, while I’m getting more and more into the idea of battalion level, where a mediu ...

Seconded! (or should it be "thirded") Confused Lets keep it simple and as close to FOW as possible.

I like miccog’s idea of players being able to choose ratings to a certain degree. That would certainly make it more fun to play certain armies.

However, I think, like Nicofig and Dillingham, that ...

Well, I think I still prefer the 1 battalion = 1 FOW platoon, i.e. 1 base = 1 company. This would also allow us to represent skirmishers on the table top.

By replacing the company base (medium) of ...

Not a lot of activity here these days it seems.

I’ve been thinking a bit more about scale and basing, and in the end, I think I prefer Dillingham’s scheme where a (medium) base equals a company in ...

Good idea. Let’s establish the stats for a normal stand of line infantry and take it from there!

Good question Dillingham.

I don’t think that the elite company needs to be a problem as the presence of this company could be factored into the stats of either the whole battalion (which would make ...
