Welcome to Librarium Online!
Another quick one that, although I realise is personal opinion and changeable depending on situation, I need a ball park idea of.
If you have a unit of, say, 18-20 Spearmen, what ranks would you put them in? 2x10? 4x5? 5x4? What about if they were hand weapons + shield, or Orcs with 2 weapons?
Just trying to get a feel for what works "best" (or, I should say, most commonly).
Thanks in advance
I guess the most common for a unit of 20 infantry would be five wide and four deep.
If they were archers or handgunners or the like then you might be wiser giving them a wider frontage so as more models can shoot.
Try a few games and see what works for you.
