Re: Skirmisher Allocation

Looking over the Nafziger OOB, Schiner's Brigade had the 24th Demi-Brigade Legere strength at 1291, so you could go 2 battalions. it also had the 4th Demi-brigade at 1658.

Re: Skirmisher Allocation

Re: A Random cavalry battle

I very much liked the video. Totally jealous of the size of your table. Is there any specific reason why most of your cavalry charges are conducted in 'line' formation. We would only use line if we had small units. In all other cases we use two ranks. CP Usually we have also done the 2 rank movemen...

Re: A Random cavalry battle

Agree with @Pyjamas, filming dice rolls with one-hand on the camera can be a challenge but it adds hugely to the interest. Especially worth showing during those key make-or-break charges.

Very much enjoying the video reports Dave. Keep them coming.

Cheers

Will certainly look to doing this.

A Random cavalry battle

So on a quiet Sunday afternoon we opted for some pure cavalry action to see how it plays out. All units are from my AB collection and Terry wanted me to dust off the Poles! We really liked how this played out with some action being inconsequential with units returning to their lines to reform and go...

Re: Skirmisher Allocation

'Others' is an interesting term... Would the Westphalians be based on French tactics? I know I would never have my Poles considered as 'others', because they are better then French.. :)
