I've had a fixation (more like a mental block) about unit sizes for a while, but my brain suddenly notched up a gear yesterday evening - I realised I can unit size as needed base on the type of game (doh !)
- bigger battles: foot - 18; horse - 9 (my orginal unit sizes)
- small battles: foot - 36; horse - 18 (my up-sized units)
- skirmishes/'adventures': well any size depends on the scenario, combining/splitting units etc as needed.
Thanks to those who commented on my previous post about the lack of uniformity in coat colours - very useful - I don't think I'll be repainting all my foot units but will mix coat colours when I combine my smaller 18 fig units into larger regiments.
I've loads of cavalry - a result of my project to re-fight Roundway. However I'm somewhat short on foot regiments. So I re-organised my storage (by using a couple of new larger boxes for storing cavalry), freeing up space to allow for 2 more regiments of infantry at the new size of 36 (or 4 at the old size of 18) - more lead to buy and paint - hoorah :)
