Austrian Columns

All, I have recently purchased the AB Austrian collection of a mate, and very nice it is too :). The line battalions are the usual 36s or 48s, in six company bases. Now I always have movement trays for each unit for ease of movement and storage. I am not sure whether to buy trays to suit a column of...

Re: Resources for unit grading

I think it also depends on whether you are wanting to do historical scenarios or something fictional. If the latter, and it’s a relatively even scenario I generally factor on an average Line rating across the board, with a few Veteran and recruit to balance things out.
