Russians 1812 (Infantry)

Post by tgardner » Mon Oct 13, 2014 4:49 pm

In the Russian list, it says a minimum of 3 infantry units and 1 battery of artillery per division. The list minimums make it 3 units of
Infantry (4 flats of poor and 8 flats of drilled), 4 flats of Jager and 3 flats of artillery.

I'm not a gamer who calculates every little advantage to squeeze out the biggest bang for the buck. But I know Russian troops and need some
assemblance of order. Since regiments are 2 battalions, do I consider each unit a regiment or brigade? Considering the Russians were NOT up to strength
so a unit considered a brigade is not too far fetched.
I would like to run a division as 3 units (2 infantry & 1 Jager) w/ artillery. But that fourth unit in the minimums sticks out.

Also, the minimums and maximums used, are they specifically for EACH division or is this for the whole corp?

The minimums and maximums in the list are for the corps.

You would have to have a 3rd infantry unit of some type in each division.
