I agree that the proposal's a reasonable limit for the typical 800-900 point game. I usually play much larger games - more like 1200-1500 points.hazelbark wrote:I think to add to Brett's points. A 800 point game is also an influence on the v2. At 800 or even 900 points (which I play more of) you are really talking about a smaller Corps.
Particularly 00-07 the OB for a Corps is approximately 1 battery per division and the equivalent of 1-2 Corps level battery assets. So I think there is a strong case for these limitations in those constraints.
On my to do is a more methodical review of late period OBs. The 1813 armies obviously, 1812 Russians and parts of 09 are ones to evaluate. It is important to review those OBs in the context of 800-900 points as some of those Corps clearly wildly exceed that many points.
I usually took max artillery units in V1 so I am looking at this carefully.
FYI - an 1806 Prussian division had 2 heavy batteries (one per infantry brigade), a horse artillery battery (heavy cavalry brigade) and 10 medium battalion guns which were sometimes grouped into brigade batteries of 5 guns each, but at 10,000 troops that division is more like a small corps - since it's about 700-750 pts.
