|A full French division, with two brigades and artillery with each infantry unit in column formation. The troops simulated in this screenshot are around 5,000 men ...|
Although it was no secret that not all the infantry formations were represented, I don't know too much of the missing ones were relevant to the field of battle. But one was missed by me: the ordre mixte.
But anyway, the most up to date version of Scourge of War Waterloo includes a so-called "expanded toolbar - grog" that can be loaded as a mod. To load it you will have to go to click on the "modifications" button in the main screen of the game and select the "expanded toolbar - grog". A restart is required.
I think the latest version of the game includes the expanded toolbar, but if not you can download it from this link:
|The troops moved under the directions of the AI brigade commanders and here is the result. This formation is supposed to combine maneuverability, depth, shock and firepower.|
|Here I am moving one of the brigades to the left so to open the center of the division position for an artillery line.|
|The artillery into the gap I opened with a simple command. Again, the ordre mixte is not a defensive formation and the overall combined arms deployment is not sound.|
