If I have say 18 infantry in a hex can I move them all together (to the same destination)in one stack if I have 2 leaders or do I have to move some with one leader separately and then the others with the second? This would be important during overuns.

You nailed it.

Okay to casually move them all together so long as the necessary leadership is present. However, must obey strictly to the rules for overruns.

A major impact is it prevents the creation of unrealistic super stacks.

I am not sure what you mean by your last sentence about super stacks.

What prevents you gathering 50 or 100 sp's together to do an overrun? This would be a super stack. Not allowed.

The effects of attrition also work to prevent such tactics.

Happy Gaming,

I always thought this was more about representing Corps, and if each Infantry strength = 5000 troops, a Corps of 50,000 troops is a strong one. The logistics of marching and feeding that many men and horses on pre-Industrial European roads would be the main difficulty.

If anything, the stacking should be smaller, particularly with the no-name leaders.

The large battles usually had around 100,000 troops, with Leipzig having 225,000 French and 380,000 Allied troops (45 vs 76 strength points)

I just realized that my original question was based on the 1st ed rules...no mention of stack size on overruns.
Reading the 3rd ed rules (just discovered)has cleared up the overrun movement allowance.
What I really wanted clarified was can I move more than 10 sp's at the same time.
All clear now...Many thanks, Dave.

3rd Edition Rulebook?

What is this mystical thing you speak of that has solved all your problems?

Glad to help.
