I'd suggest that a typical Sharp Practice Force would be drawn from a single company or battalion depending on the size of the game, so will probably all be classed the same way unless the scenario called for a mixture of units. I like to play 6 to 9 leaders a side. Simply don’t own that many figur...
I'm more inclined to go with the 1813-14 stats myself though I wouldn't object if a player wanted to claim that his Sharp Practice force had more veterans in its ranks and preferred to use the 1809-12 list. As for Legere by now most were no different than the Line so I'd treat them as Conscript & V...

Vistula Legion list ... the points appear to be much higher than I can get them. Using the Sharpulator with the bands of +1 for each three, I can only get the 1808-1812 fusiliers and grenadiers to 7 and 10 points respectively rather than the 10 and 13 in the list -- a rather significant difference....
Thanks again @Captain Reid! It was the Sharpulator that got me checking the lists and finding (mostly imagined) discrepancies. The costings of ordinary French line (SP2 rules, p106) got me slightly confused because I didn't notice that they are classed as Conscripts/Volunteers rather than Regulars. ...

Rules aside, your new convert probably had it right as far as historical practice is concerned, at least for large formations. Wheeling is a very tricky thing to do. On the small scale of SP - even allowing for a figure scale of say 3:1 giving a few dozen men – wheeling would probably be easier.
Surprised not to be able to find this anywhere on the forum. Has anyone drafted a French list specifically for the Hundred Days campaign? Old Guard aside, presumably most troops would be fairly raw and inexperienced, much as in 1813/14, but surely a few of the better Legere regiments and Young Guard...

I'm having a few problems reconciling skirmishers on the tabletop. Now, I have French and British Napoleonic armies based around a standard battalion of 16 men. For the French infantry battalion of 6 companies this naturally generates a base of 3 men as skirmishers, representing the voltigeur compan...
