Over the past year I have been accumulating a significant number of unpainted 25mm Seven Years War (SYW) figures by Minfigs, enough to build several European armies. At the outset I decided to follow previous unit organisations, with 12 figure units, based to fit my Command & Colors hex mats.
However; on Friday I received the final batch of figures, which were all painted and based and were originally part of the Eric Knowles huge collection. My initial plan was to reorganise and base these figures in my usual way. That was until I saw them. Mostly cavalry, the figures are organised into large regiments of around 18 figures, with a significant amount of artillery guns, crews and limbers.
I decided that I could not break up these units and decided to to keep them whole. At the same time I dug out this small book:
So, my SYW project is going to be based on the above rules using half size units.
