Line 1: Line 1:
In SCA heavy weapons combat, the most common formation called the shield wall.  This can be as simple as having everyone with a shield make a line, shoulder to shoulder.  Everyone else gets behind them.  Some commanders/units will add order to the [[back field]].
;Reserve unit: A group of fighters held behind the shield wall in case a problem or opportunity develops.
;Flanking unit: A group of fighters whose assigned task is the execute a Flank Right/Left independent of the main group's motion.
;Columns of 2/3/4: The unit forms into 2/3/4 lines for marching with no expectation of attack (because the battle hasn't started yet and you're all trying to get through a small gate.)
