For patriotic reasons I've toyed for some time doing a Norwegian force.
I'm thinking 1808-1809 period as it opens up what ifs with British amphibious invasions.
Now there is no point in having units the size of battalions as even the biggest battles would be a couple of battalions on size.

But skirmish would be to small for the bigger fights (and the Perry figures are not very skirmish friendly)

So some sort of company sized stuff might work. But what rules would work for that?

Whatever you do, you gotta do the Ski troops! :-)

Reindeer, pulling a 3pdr, on skis. (The gun not the critters)

Very good evidence for that in Napoleonic Era. Now where did I imagine it?

Don't know about in Norway, we generally only eat the reindeer, it's the Fins that do other stuff with them.
But we do have 3pdrs on "skis"
This is mid 18th century, but might have been used later.
