Question on 1806 Prussian Jager - mounting them

Post by 18th Century Guy » Mon Mar 18, 2013 5:06 pm

I've got a question on how to represent these units on the table. During the 1806 campaign the jagers were assigned by the company and the company was 200 men. That means 10 figures are available to each company but in the rules the lowest amount of figures listed for a specialist light infantry unit is 16. Given that in some cases only 1 company was assigned to a given brigade or division what is the best way to handle this (other than assigning more than 1 company :) )?

That should present no problem whasoever Greg. We have often attached Jager detachments of 4 models to Prussian brigades in later parts of the war. They act as independent units requiring single unit actions. The ignore support/supporting rules. You should be fine with that. I think I may even have examples under the Prussian section in the book.. can;t remember :oops: I certainly put something in for thr Sambre Crossing scenarios in WI a couple of years back
