Q: I was looking at the paintings and noticed the battalions were of a strange size. Why did the Dutch battalions have 160 men in them? Shouldn't they have 120?

A: Battalions sizes could vary from time to time and varied depending on how the nation had set up their military doctrine. It is always an option to increase or decrease the size of your battalions. The general range for the time period was from 40 to 160.
