Thanks for the quick reply. I have just found out  I will need to  buy the original manual and the Austerlitz book again

because i've had to move into a assisted living facility and most of my books were left in my home and the purchaser

trashed them.

Hi, 

We use 6mm figures and the 1 inch to 100 yards ground scale.  A normal sized infantry battalion is on a 50mm frontage by 30mm depth mdf base.  Roughly 10 figures to a rank, 3 ranks to a battalion.  Gives a nice impression.  Smaller battalions are based on 40mm by 30mm bases (about 24 figures).  Not done any large battalions yet but they would be on a 60mm by 30mm base and have more figures(probably 36ish).  Cavalry squadron groups are also based on a 40mm by 30mm base - two ranks, 5 figures per rank.  

Command stands are based on circular bases.  Obviously increasing in size and the number of figures as you progress up the hierarchy.  

1 inch to 100 yards makes it much easier to convert maps etc...

I'm using 6mm H&R figures on 30mm x 20mm bases.  Putting 3 ranks of 8 each for infantry or 1 rank of 5 cavalry.  Here's a overhead view of my Prussian Guard Brigade circa 1813.  I'm playing at the 1/150 scale.

I’m using 6mm minis and have gone with 150-yard scale. Units are on 40x25mm bases, each containing a standard Baccus Miniatures unit of 24 Infantry (in 3 ranks), or 9 cavalry (in 2 ranks).
