Command and control plays a big part in many rule systems. Separately based models are often required to symbolize individual commanders on the tabletop. To represent the various levels of command hierarchy associated with this period in history I personally utilize both small and large circular stands. Measuring three inches in diameter the larger stands containing two or three mounted figures denote divisional (and in big games corps) commanders. While at just two inches in diameter the smaller bases with a single mounted figure represent subordinate brigade and artillery commanders.
Pictured below are several individually based officers on foot. These brave colonels would be attached to units in Fire & Fury games granting small tactical and command bonuses to their regiments for the duration of the battle or until the misfortunes of war strike them down. Ultimately I plan to paint a few more and use them as staff officers in future games of David Brown’s Pickett’s Charge.
