The light infantry contingent of the Markgraaf's army are now painted and stuck onto their bases. I'm following the Shako rules system and having only eight figures, two to a base to represent the unit in skirmish order. Under the rules light infantry in good cover can be a real pest to formed troops but are rightly vulnerable to cavalry in the open. If contacted in melée in the open by formed troops of any kind, they just vanish from the table, which saves time working out the combat.
