Cavalry regiments are divided into two sub-divisions, Each has it’s own statuslabel, but they always operate together.When in column, these two lines are about 20 cm apart.When in line, they are side by side.
All infantry units are represented by blocks of close order troops withskirmishers out in front. The skirmishers are integral to the unit, and arefactored in to all the results – so for the most part they are a visualrepresentation. The one exception is light companies (such as British riflecompanies) operating as semi-independent skirmishers, usually operatingsome distance in front of the main line.When 6-base infantry units form square, temporarily remove 2 of the basesand make the square of just 4 bases. This is to represent the more compactphysical size of the square.

Units are either ORDERED or DISORDERED. Disorder is caused by avariety of things, such as changing formation, enemy fire or combat. A unitmay re-order itself by remaining stationary and not firing for one turn.
