Re: reglas.

As already suggested it would depend on the rules and size of the units. In more recent rules, units of figures could represent a battalion of 400 - 700 men, so could be represented by as little as 12 figures depending on the rules Hits on a unit are not always just casualties, they could also represent loss of moral, so to keep the rules from turning into something more complex, just keeping the unit as a whole on the table and marking the hits can make valid sense. We also know that depth in wargaming units is really not representative or true depth and that units in battle would reduce ranks to maintain frontage so again keeping the entire unit on the table would more clearly represent this maintaining of frontage that may not be possible if figures are removed from an already limited number representing the unit.

As the scale comes down then yes it makes better sense. I think Donald will also agree we took this path of leaving units on when doing demonstration/show games so the spectacle of the wargaming table remained just that. ie keeping the look of a big game. Units were removed once destroyed or routed.
