The rules are meant for "medium" sized battles of 2000 to 5000 men per side. Since the game scale is 1:20, this
means a typical battle will have about 150-200 figures per side. Smaller games of this sort are often more
enjoyable and engrossing than huge "table crushers" where 1000-figure armies bash at each other into the wee
hours of the morning.
– Sons of Liberty introduction
Each figure represents 20 infantry, 10 cavalry, or 3 gunners. A gun model represents 1 actual gun.
The length of a turn is not strictly defined, but about 10 minutes seems right, all things considered. The rules use
10-sided dice (D10) for all random calculations. The rules measure distances in inches. One inch represents 15
paces (about 40 feet). The rules are meant for 25mm size figures.
