When I collect armies I always do so based on a historical battle. Even if doing a skirmish I would find it difficult to field forces who weren't in the area at the time. I am more a historian than a gamer, I suppose.

POLL DESCRIPTION

In your historical games, how often do stage a refight? A lifted-from-history refight? Orbats, recreated maps, etc.

I never do. I'm inspired by historical events but am not particularly keen on redoing them. Instead I start with general military objectives (meeting engagement, break through, capture battlefield objective x, hold battlefield objective x) then build plausible forces with plausible terrain and proceed from there.
