Following on from peoples suggestions I thought I’d try a mock up of the first option and also of my third option allowing me more rule flexibility. So…

here is how I was planning at first to reflect Prussian tactics. It looks less crowded from above but from any angle – i.e. normal viewing – it does appear ‘full’. The alternative is to allow me to use bases for Lasalle as well and gives me something like this:

As Mike commented below, figures at the edge may be a problem although the bases will be quite chunky so should enable picking up without touching the edge figures. Although I would probably drop the number of skirmishers to four. I could also take a figure out of the front rank and slot the mounted officer in there to free up the sides…

Anyway, again, comments appreciated.



Please follow and like us:


  1. Just IMO, but the one on the left with the two coloumns looks better. But you must follow your own thoughts, whatever you do it will look good I reckon.

  2. Yeah – top one!

    Some people I knoe play Grand Armee – they think its much quicker to play than other rules but still allow you to move big armies around.

    I prefer rules with smaller bases but each to their own!

  3. Hmmm…really can't decide. I thought I was heading towards the bottom option to allow me to use Lasalle but now I'm not sure…

    I've never been particularly decisive!
