Four Infantry regiments march past Elector Max II Emanuel.
When I mounted them I decided to mount them on a reduced frontage of 2 1/2 inches instead of 3 inches because that was the width of the wood I had! I liked "Kreigspiel" look of the taller bases at the time though eventually I will probably remount them on thinner bases.
For the War of Spanish Succession (WSS) the bases represent regiments consisting of multiple battalions. There are no formations to worry about - that's what your subordinate commanders should be worrying about. The base is the "foot print" of the unit; as the army and division commanders you just point them in the right direction and say charge!
VnB is a fast play game that allows you to recreate large battles. To me it gives the feel of linear warfare. The original rules are designed for 1700 - 1900 but I have yet to play another period with them. I now have the latest addition, Volley and Bayonet: Age of Glory which has greatly improved an already great set of rules.
The commander pauses when confronted by a giant piece of dog hair.
Next up will be a detailed breakdown by unit of my Bavarian Army with a little bit of history thrown in for fun.
