I started work on these rules to fulfil some personal gaming criteria. I wanted rules for a small battle but not a skirmish. The command level would therefore be around the unit, rather than the division. I imagine medieval unit commanders using their initiative and experience within an overall game plan, so the player is being a succession of unit commanders with limited initiative, plus the big cheese, who has slightly more control over those around him.
