Boxed Sets

These army suggestions include the troops, bases, flags and markers you need to get in to CWB.

The army is the normal 2 division type needed for a standard CWB game.

How to assemble the boxed set

1. Artillery. The 4x4 cm bases are for the artillery guns. Glue 1 gun and 4 crew to an artillery base. The gun and crew should all be glued on as they are not separated for any part of the game. PP gun crews either come in firing or loading teams.

2. Generals There will be a C in C (corps commander) base. This should be 4 x 4 cm. There will also be 2 divisional commander bases. These are 3 x 4 cm depth.

3. Infantry. The basic infantry unit in CWB(Civil War Battles) is the infantry brigade. This is represented by 6 bases . Each base is a square of 3cm size. One base will be the command base and have half a pack (4 figures) from a command pack upon it. The other 5 bases will each have 3 figures on them. Thus a brigade will be made up from two packs of infantry and half a pack of command.

4. Markers. In CWB figures are used as markers to show the status of a unit. The half base marker bases should be 3 x 1 cm and be cut from spare 3x3 cm bases.

Necessary markers are disorder, half base and casualty. The bases in CWB die in half base increments thus the need for a few spare half bases. These can be made from spare infantry figures.

The suggestion here provides an army of 6 brigades(3 per division) and 4 gun batteries. It is perfectly correct that no cavalry are in this army. They can be added by future purchases but were not always with the infantry.
