You mean something like this adapted for wargaming?

Mark,
how many figure are you intend to use or what scale?

A Friend of mine once did his Swedish Brigades with 15mm and used 40+ Figures for it. I am in England now so I cant look at the pics of this units to tell the exact composition. But I do when I get back if you are interested.

Cheers,
Günter

There is actually a good illustration of the different brigade systems in pike and shotte from warlord games. Also some very nice pictures!
The rules themselves are pretty good.
