Re: D&D spirited defence scenario set up

For example you have a 6x4ft table. Divide the table up into 2x2 areas so you end up with six areas. Imagine they are labeled thusly: ABC DEF Blue picks an area to enter from and then Red picks two area adjacent to Blue's to defend. So if Blue picked D to enter from, Red could pick either A,B or E t...

Re: SP2 big battles

Hasven't seen this done, but you could use an 8 man Group as a battalion with a Level I or II Colonel Big Man attached. You would then use a Level III or IV Big Man as a Brigade General. A few other tweaks and I think you could get it to work.

Re: AWI UNIT ID

The Combined List is meant to be for the later period of the war, probably 1778 onwards. The two Groups of Light Infantry Skirmishers would be: British Light Infantry Skirmishers, 1778 onwards . The One Group of 8 Loyalist Ranger Skirmishers with Rifles would have to be the Loyalist Ranger Skirmishe...

Re: shock markers

You can make your own quite easily and if you don't want to paint up casualty figures to go on top, you can just use small rocks, pebbles or some other marker. This blog shows you how: http://westsoundwarriors.blogspot.com/search/label/Casualty%20Markers I've used the ones from Warbases, but found t...

Re: Upgrading leaders

We play it that you can also upgrade the Leaders you all ready have. The Generic Support List on page 80 doesn't have any restriction on who you can upgrade. A note of caution however, Level IV Leaders can be tremendously powerful so we usually don't allow anything more than Level III.

Re: Added flags for larger battles?

I've noticed the same thing as Contrarius has. Not sure what the fix for it is. Seems to me most players use the Command Flags to remove Shock and once in awhile Sharp Practice. For units that require three flags to do something, it rarely gets done. With more Leaders, the Level 1 Sergeants are usin...

Re: SP1 to SP2

You are best off buying SP2 as there is quite a bit of difference between the two and SP2 is very improved over SP1.You could play Swamp Fox scenarios using SP1 but there are a few things like Force Morale and Deployment Points that wouldn't make sense with SP1. I don't think you will regret getting...

Re: Enfilade 2018 AAR Race for the Bridge

Some players just wanted to see how the rules worked. Some had the rules but hadn't played them yet so they enjoyed seeing how they work. Others just like to push troops around. Most of them appreciated getting to see how the game played. One thing I forgot to do in the Friday game was go with a Rul...
