Some pictures of the first part of my project: the entire Leibregiment of Bavaria on 3 battallions (1 Grenadier and 2 Musketier) for a total force of 2100 men, i.e. 2100 paperfigures.
they are not glued but just held with a magnet, so removable but not moving, even in very windy days.

How much frontage is that in actual feet?

paperbattles14 Sep 2023 10:25 a.m. PST

4 feet, or better 120 cm wide.

Nice. I wonder though if the flags should be somewhat larger- unless that's a deliberate choice?

Four feet. Wow.

This gives a good idea of just how long and thin those lines were!

A truly impressive amount of work. Kudos!!!

@still; we can assume that the size of a flag was 150X150 cm as average; (British bigger). If you look at the size of the papersoldier and of the flag you see they are in proportion.To I saw in Turin some flags of the period and I can confirm they were quite little but heavy (done in silk the most elaborated). In any way I will do some further reseaches on this

@Ryzbak. Yes! and so consider how the wargames' rapresentations are wrong. If you consider that a battalion is done 3X2 or a sort of this proportion you understand that it is totally wrong. I will post some pictures with the total regiment and you will see what it means to have 1 regiment deployed. Imagine to have 10 or 20 battalions in line….

here you can hava an idea of some bigger deployement. Always at ratio 1:1 (in this case SYW Prussians)
