I finished what I consider my "main" unit for my initial British Force for Rebels and Patriots. My Highland unit will be a Shock Infantry unit that is Large (18 figures) and Aggressive (+1) in Fighting. But more on that later when I post the entire, initial British Force.

So in your game rules, what does that unit represent?

Nice looking unit!

I'm using "Rebels and Patriots" which was designed for one figure = one man for large scale skirmish. The authors have also pointed out that the scale is very flexible so sometimes it might be a battalion and sometimes a company and sometimes a detachment.

I do much the same with my "Flames of Liberty" variant for TSATF.
I base figures individually. Thus they can be a 1:1 skirmish game, or a company. Use the "traditional" stipulation that muskets fire 18" and in gaming terms it makes little difference.

BTW. Nice figures.

John the OFM – Thanks for the comments! Sounds like we have similar ideas.
