Re: Charges again

Mike
I completely overlooked the fact that the second target unit was entitled to supports!
As I said we were having a run through the rules after a gap of some time, but next game I'll be better prepared.

Re: Charges again

Hi Mike We did the same as you described with the target of the "charge on" giving defensive fire, but they failed miserably then and also in the melee. Sounds to me as though you were doing it correctly, but I think I forgot to give supporting defensive fire from the support unit when I could have ...

Re: Charges again

Hi Ian
I had just assumed the artillery would be able to evade being limbered. It was only when we came to check that I read Page 50.
I had not seen Page 45 b. V.
Thanks for pointing that out and for your response.
As I said in my reply to John, I'll have to be more careful in future!
Cheers

Re: Charges again

Hi John Yes we did follow through as though it was a fresh charge, but the KGL went in to wreak havoc. I think my deployment was at fault by giving them the chance to charge in the first place combined with dreadful dice throwing. A painful lesson learned🤔 Thanks for your thoughts, much appreciated....

I had a foot artillery battery limbered on the right side of my brigade which was advancing. I had an Infantry battalion to the left of them, one following the guns and another...

Re: First Game - Thoughts and Impressions

Glad you enjoyed the game Ian. I must say that after reading the rules a few times I felt I had found the "Grai" I had been looking for. I now just need to find someone who feels the same🤔 They have certainly rekindled my interest in Napoleonics which have always been my first love. Look forward to ...
