Each bound represents approximately 10 minutes on the battlefield. This time interval has been chosen because the majority of close actions would have been resolved in this time or less. It also roughly approximates to the time taken for
infantry to close from extreme to close artillery range. There is therefore no need for detailed treatment of the minutiae of actions during an assault, it is swept up in a single calculation.
The ground scale is 1mm = 2 metres. Figure bases and unit frontages should be consistent with this scale and the actual numbers of men in the historical unit. The figures are merely convenient representational markers, so any appropriate size of
figure can be used to meet your taste and to fit the unit frontage. That said, these rules have been written with 15mm figures in mind.
Each figure represents between 50 and 60 men. Most battalions can be represented in the same way, i.e. a group of 10-15 figures, usually 12. There is no special reason for this, except that it is convenient for those with whom I play the games.
For artillery, the gun models are merely representative. The number of figures of gun crew represent the number of guns in the artillery unit.

- Allow 4 men per metre, hence a 500-man battalion would have a frontage of 125 metres or 6 cm and be represented by 10 figures.
- Allow 3 men per metre frontage for battle cavalry. Allow 1 man per metre frontage for light cavalry.
