In order to provide the most information in as compact and useable format as possible, a number of conventions have been adopted in this list. The general formal lists higher level commands in bold while units represented by a game unit are in non-bold type. Corps-level commands are listed to the far left, division-level commands (including Prussian "brigades") are indented one tab, V&B-level skirmishers, command, brigade (including the large Prussian regiments), and artillery battalion stand units are indented two tabs. (For more information of the size of Prussian "brigades" and "regiments," see the section in this booklet discussing thaat army in detail.) Smaller units which are subordinates of the V&B-scale game units are indented three tabs. On the far right are the V&B game values for the game units. Commanders are noted by two letters which indicate their level of command. (AC = Army Commander, CC = Corps Commander, DC = Division Commander). Comabt units always have two numbers, the first being the strength (in roster strength points) of the unit and the second its morale.
Many units have additional notes which elaborate special capabilities or limitations. These are:
|Cav Skm:||a cavalry skirmish stand||Fld:||Field artillery|
|Hv:||Heavy cavalry or artillery||Lnc:||Lancer|
|Lt:||Light cavalry||Md:||Medium cavalry|
|Skirmisher:||an infantry skirmish stand||Sharpshooter:||an infantry sharpshooter skirmish stand|
|*:||Shock infantry||#:||Consult the end notes for additional comments.|
In the Anglo-Allied Army, there are a number of special cases with respect to which units may detach skirmishers and, in some cases, what type of skiormishers are detached. Some brigades detach sharpshooters, some detach troops of a higher morale grade, and others detach the normal skirmisher. Rather than attempt to list all of the exceptions separately, each brigade which can detach a skirmisher simply has the type of skirmisher listed under the heading "available detachment." In the Anglo Allied-Army, additional information is provided by typeface and formatting. British veteran infantry battalions which served in the Iberian Penninsula under Wellington are denoted by underlining their title. Thus the listing for the components of the British 1st Guards Brigade - 1/1 Gd, 3/1 Gd - shows that the 1/1 Gd (First Battalion, 1st Guards) was not a Penninsular veteran unit, while the 3/1 Gd was. A number of elements of the Anglo-Allied Army were not present at the battle of Watrerloo. A few of these were scattered in garrisons across Belgium, but most were concentrated in a large flanking detachment at Hal. The units not present at Waterloo are printed in italics.
In the identifications of specific component units, a number of abbreviations are used to conserve space. These are listed below.
|RFA:||Royal Foot Artillery||RHA:||Royal Horse Artillery|
|KGL:||King's German Legion||Bn:||Battalion|
