Brigades and Batteries 1:50 Basic Rules
These rules are a 1:50 scale adaptation of the basic 1:20 scale version of the rules. The major differences are in the distances and ranges, which are a little over half those used in the 1:20 scale version of the rules.

- Each figure represents 50 infantry, 40 cavalry, or enough gunners to man one section of guns (2 actual tubes).
- A gun model represents either 6 or 8 actual guns. One gun model represents a 6- or 8-gun battery. Two gun models represent a 12-gun battery. There must be one gunner figure per section of guns in the battery. Thus a 6-gun battery has 3 gunners, an 8-gun battery has 4 gunners, and a 12-gun battery has 6 gunner figures.
- One inch represents about 50 paces. Thus 42 inches represents one mile (about 2100 paces).
- A turn is an undefined amount of time, but about 15 minutes seems right, all things considered.
