The points for the French contra-guerrilla forces are variable depending on force composition and period, and there is some ambiguity in the reference to "Regulars" (i.e., should it be "Line Infantry").

For example, a Blockhouse Garrison in 1811 using French Grenadiers as the Regulars would be 57 points. A similar force in 1813 would be 49 points.

If the reference to "Regulars" is intended, then you could replace the 1811 Grenadiers with Voltigeurs, dropping to 53 points; but you could not make the same switch in 1813 (Grenadiers are the only French Regulars available then).

If the reference to "Regulars" is meant to be "LIne Infantry", then your 1811 Blockhouse Garrison is at 45 points and the 1813 garrison is 41 points.

I suspect that's why there are no points provided for the proposed core forces.
