Hi Everyone - new to BFAS Rules ie recently got the revised big book.

I've so far got the Cossack Skirmish Set, plus a 5-wagon tabor box I bought years ago.

Can anyone advise how to build a Zaporozhian Cossack Army of the 1660s/1670s, or even earlier, with the BFAS Rules/Cossack Army Lists?

As far as I can make out, each type of Cossack army has to have registered Cossacks, but I want just a Zaporozhian Cossack army, made up of just Zaporozhians.

I know Zaporozhians might often be joined on a campaign by other Cossacks eg town Cossacks, registered Cossacks (more likely individuals than complete units) and Don Cossacks, and so they could be options (although registered Cossacks would more likely be included in the main army, some even joining their former units).

The only way I can see of achieving a Zaporozhian army is to discount the registered Cossack units as registered Cossacks and count them as better Zaporozhian units (and painted accordingly), so Cossack sotnias = Cossack sotnias, registered sotnias = slightly better Cossack sotnias, registered veterans = Cossack veterans - but all Zaporozhians.

Any advice and suggestions would be welcome.
