Like that you don't have all the units fully identified - allows them to fill in/stand in where needed for actual or even hypothetical battles.

When you get some time, I'd like to hear about your approach to flags, especially for the American side of things, the British are a little easier.

I suppose I should let the good Mr. kingsmt answer for himself :D, but I use random period colors for my AWI Continental and Militia units.  They tend to stand in for a myriad of historical units depending on the scenario we're playing, so I don't worry if they are unit-specific.  I know that's heresy for some folks, but it's my story... :)

Fifteens,   Send me a PM with your email and I'll send you my Flag File.

200 or so flags of the AWI.

OK! Back with a glimpse into a British box!!

So, I opened this box (which was just marked "British") only to discover about 100 different British Light Infantry and Grenadiers!!

All mounted singly on washers?
What the hell was I thinking?

Anyway, this box will prove that the British do exist.

A quick tease of what was in the box.
2 stands of Grenadiers and 2 stands of Highlanders were in there also.

Okay then.  Interesting start to His Majesty's forces.  Perhaps you wanted single-based skirmish-capable flank co. nen?

CapnJim,   Yes, that appears to have been my motive. Single movement as opposed to group moves. It's the only thing that makes any sense.
