Greetings,

  With a 'brigade' (2 stands) being 12 guns.  A French Division had an 8 gun foot battery and a 6 gun horse battery in 1812.  What should I replicate on the field?  I am leaning towards one of each.

Regards,
Mike

Depending on the rest of the order of battle, how many more formations there are and the overall number of units I would go with one of 3 things.

Combine the 8 and 6 gun batteries and have them as one battery using the majority type (foot in this case).

If the division is going to be fielded as part of a corps then combine the 6 gun horse with another from the same corps and have them attached at corps level.

Have the batteries separate but start them with fewer points of CV to represent the smaller sizes of the units.
