In the outlined hex I'm fighting Napoleon, but I can't see any of his units that are in my hex. I never saw them enter the hex either. I'm playing medium FOW. And for some reason I can see all these other French units all around, but the ones in my hex. Anybody run into this?
It can be confusing when units get mixed in the same hex and, as the game resolves movement, I can see units being moved into and out of hexes, until the movement turn ends.
When a battle commencement is shown and the forces are listed (as in your screen shot), you sometimes see different a ratio of forces when the battle actually resolves. I am assuming that these are forces that have 'marched to the sound of the guns' and entered the battle after it has begun.
You often do not see all the enemy units in a stack and the only clue is the total units in the same stack, mouse-over a stack and look at the 'Stack' number in the top bar of the game screen ( like 'Stack 8'). If 5 of of them are yours, then 3 of them are enemy, even if you cannot see them.
You are seeing French units all around, but only 1 unit per hex, again mouse-over and see if these French units represent stacks, there is likely to be more there than you think (although the stack numbers will include supply and command units, as well as fighting units).
