The Char sounds like it would be a fun challenge to use properly.
Captain Billotte certainly thought so!

Re: Twitter now the main channel for TFL?

I'd hope so, Warlord virtually killed their own forums, firstly by actually killing them for months, then when they came back stuff was added there as an afterthought, if they remembered, with FAQ & similar on faceache and quite a few semi official responses of "oh thats in the faceache group" You ...

Re: Diversifying my 18mm Napoleonic French

One addendum to Archdukek's answer, each of the six mounted troops of a British light dragoon regiment in fact had two men with rifles (actually rifled carbines) and I believe that each of the six dismounted troops had a similar distribution of rifled weapons. In addition, British light infantry com...
