You don't really need to make a thread about this, but all Regiments would have a Colonel.

If you wish to have Captain, then go with it if you're a small Regiment.

Maybe Lieutenant should be more appropriated (lowest Officer rank except Sous-Lieutenant) for smallest structures

Captain is a more dashing title and makes sense due to the fact said officer will commanding and fighting more in the game in the field.

I would suggest Captain at the start of the regiment when the amount of enlisted is low. And when you haven't got any CO at your side. I would suggest moving over to Lt-Col or Col whenever you get More CO's, NCO's and enlisted.

But in the end it's just a personal preference. Captain does look and sound more satisfying to me.

Agreed, I know that several regiments and regiment leaders like to do this so there is a nice spread of ranks rather than having a Colonel and then a Cpl and some Enlisted for Example.

I'd say go for colonel if you have several detachments, captain if only line (for example)

I'd say go for captain, now don't get me wrong everyone goes out on the field. Some in different ways, but if you really think about it. Which person will probably be more comfortable sipping tea out of a British Camp. A Colonel or a Captain? Though with that aside it would make much more since for Lieutenant. As a captain could be leading a ship more often, and a Lieutenant is more likely to manage the Lines.

Go with Captain. Colonels are commanding officers for entire regiments which can be up to 3-5 companies big. In real life, that's almost 1500 troops. So in regards to the game, if you have about 30 members, you are a company sized unit so you should stick with Captain as thats the rank for company commanders.

But if you want to stroke your epeen, and have multiple company's with like 6 dudes in each and make yourself Colonel, go for it. Just don't be surprised if someone makes fun of you for it ;)

Captain is better, i'm captain and i have 15-20 players. I agree that colonel is better if you have a real army like 50 players or more
