Scale
Models (figures)
One model infantry figure represents 50 actual men. One model cavalry figure represents 40 actual troopers. One cannon model represents two actual guns. Two gunner or crew figures represent enough personnel to serve one actual gun; therefore a fully-crewed gun model would have 4 gunner models.
Distance Scale
One inch on the game table represents 40 actual paces (about 100 feet), taking an average of the many shifting definitions of a “pace” as two and one-half feet.
Turn Length
A turn in the game represents more or less 15 minutes of real time: a lot of “hurry up and wait” mixed with bursts of intense activity.
