The fictional Battle of Oberbratwurst, fought during the War of Spanish Succession, will be fought using the rules Volley and Bayonet. Volley and Bayonet is a "grand-tactical" level game and allows players to assume the roles of Army and other higher level commanders. Figures are mounted on one stand and rosters are utilizing that have the unit's strength points.

Geat AAR. Are you using full-sized VnB stands?

I read somewhere about a VnB player who gave every unit a saving throw on their last strength point in order to make unit collapse less predictable. It would help model the unit that doesn't know they are beaten and continue to fight like the devil. in effect, a 1 strength point unit does not collapse until it fails a savings throw.

The saving throw is a great idea! I used a frontage of 2 1/2 inches to save storage space.
