Re: Fisticuffs

Sometime ago using SP1, I had a question about a case where some British riflemen were trying to get into a building to rescue someone inside. I dithered about how to do it worrying that you would have to go through a process of trying to get through the door first with individual melees. Sort of ho...

Re: Moving mules

We just let them move on the Force Commander's card. No need to make it complicated. They just move to where ever you want. Same as for a Physician. Water Cart or Ammo Wagon.

Looks like it was a fun game with a small amount of troops. Nice report. Look forward to your next one.

Re: Surrendering

Sounds like a good rule to me. I think there was something on the FAQ that said such Groups surrendering count as a Group wiped out for Force Morale Bad Things happening. These type of events are always good to use as a next scenario where you have to rescue prisoners so they contribute to the narra...

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...
