I think you guys will like this. It's an idea for a universal roster system that lets you play any historical scenario by overlaying a generic corps structure on top of the historical one. Using one set of eBases you can recreate any historical OOB in no time at all, (for instance, the scenarios at Deepfriedhappymice). Organizing even large OOBs is easy if you follow the system; at the bare minimum it will cut down on your pre-game set-up time. You can also use it to quickly create armies for pick-up games.

By using this system you can play any and all scenarios using the standard 3" square basing system, at 1/3 scale. All you need to do is print off the scenario OOB, assign a color to each historical corps and a roster number to each brigade, and you're done. It will work as-is with either 3mm and 6mm figures. You can also use them as labels with larger figures, by placing the eBases either on the unit's base or just behind it.

A good idea with a nice graphical rendering.

Very cool, nice work.

I may have to use this idea for FPW…

I was thinking about collecting a 6mm Baccus FPW army for this myself. I always wanted to get into that period at that scale, and this would be a fast, easy way to do so.

I've added a link to a dropbox file of the .ppt with the URS on it. Everything on there is appropriately sized, so all you need to do is download it and take it to a printer. Don't forget to laminate!
