This is sort of a recap on my other post called, Units of Measure.
This is a single platoon sized unit in a pile.
There are two platoons in this pile.
There is one TROOP in this pile. (4-6 platoons... this is about 140 soldiers so I threw in 4 more to make it gross.)
There are two TROOPS in this pile (about 300 soldiers.)
This is a squadron sized pile. (4-6 troops = 1000 soldiers.)
Both of these photos are what a small regiment looks like all piled up. (There are about 3000 to 5000 soldiers in a cavalry regiment.)
This gives you an idea of the scale of what I am working with and how many of the soldiers I am working with when I deploy them into their piles.
