Re: Would this scenario campaing work with G'dA?

Dirt Cheap, Just a couple thoughts. The Wargaming Company has 5 or 6 campaign guides out. You and your dad might be more interested in the guide entitled "The First Battle Lost" which covers the 1809 Austrian vs French campaign in the Germanies. I have one of the company's other campaign guides and ...

Re: Artillery brigades in test game

Nick/John, I believe John's on point about late war Prussian brigades (divisions). Dave addresses the issue on p. 9 under Brigade Organization , point "e". I don't think the issue of hordes of tiny Russian (or other) brigades inflating the ADC count is addressed directly in the rules. Perhaps a comm...

Re: Skirmish Bases for Large Battalions

Thanks for your thoughts, guys. We'll look into these two options, at least for house rules.

Skirmish Bases for Large Battalions

I've a question that's so army/unit specific that it may not crop up for many folks. I'd welcome any thoughts. In my 1815 Anglo-Alled army, I'm including one brigade of British Foot Guards. The brigade historically consisted of just 2 large battalions, each of roughly 1,000 men. Per the skirmish rul...
