This presents some problems for my American War of Independence Wargaming (AWIW) rules as there are a lot of historical examples of smaller units charging equal or larger units. This leads me to ponder three points:
- The number of men represented by a unit of Elite troops may be less than the number of men represented by a unit of Levy (Green, in AWIW) troops. So, a unit of four bases may represent 250 Guards (Elite troops) or 350 Regulars (Average troops), or 450 militia (Levy/Green troops).
- The morale of the troop may need to come into play so that smaller Elite units can charge equal or larger units of lower quality.
- There needs to be a special rule granted to the armies that historically consistently were able to charge despite being outnumbered.
