How many Brigade Skirmish Stands for a brigade with 6 Reservist Battalions?

Are they treated as Line or Recruits when creating the Brigade skirmish screen?

Personally I would use 6 as they start the game as Reservists and thus have the Line grading. I would not be removing stands either if one battalion dropped to recruit status during the game as I do not feel that it would be practical.

W61,

As PL states, Reservists are classed as Line and the number of skimish bases is based on that.

No skirmish stands are removed due to reservist dropping to recruit.

To add to that, when reinforcing the skirmish line via a Skirmisher's Tasking, the reservist battalion wouldn't lose the base for "recruit" unless at 4+ casualties.
