Re: Melee vs BUA attacker wins by 1 in 2nd round of melee.

We’ve always played that the attacker winning the melee for a BUA ‘occupies the ground’- so in affect moves into the BUA and is unformed. The attackers option is to occupy with one of his units involved in the melee, his choice which one. Seems fairly straight forward but not sure if we’ve just made...

Re: Melee reforming/ firing after charges/ mass column

Have I misread something. I thought the table for melee outcomes determined when units were unformed as a result of the melee??? And, that any unit having to reform had to spend its next movement phase rallying (or retiring unformed) before it could move/charge etc?? What you seem to be suggesting i...

Re: Artillery Firing Overhead

We recently introduced a house rule to prevent artillery firing through the ‘footprint’ of friendly brigades. We did this as we were finding that both sides were leaving gaps between units just wide enough to shoot our batteries through. Key hole shooting had taken on a whole new meaning!! We though...

Re: Plancenoit woods

Hi CP,

we played them as Open Woods (so everyone but cavalry and artillery can move through them) and cover to troops in them. worked well.

Re: Plancenoit Church

I've just read a great book about the defence of Le Haye Saint by the 2nd Battalion KGL Rifles. Its a brilliant read, really well written and only about 100 pages long, about half of which is the references which are extensive. This unit was posted to defend the farm and, between 1pm and sometime af...

Re: 100 Days - Battle of Gilly

Our group has played Gilly as well. Great game incredibly tense! We’re now up to Plancenoit and so far every game has had a historic outcome, with the exception of the larger Mont St Jean scenario which the French won, albeit a very bloody affair. Dave, we’re nearly done with this one, where’s the n...

Re: Battle of Osma

Hi John, This scenario only has 10 turns so there is no time to hang around! We played the smaller version of Mont St Jean yesterday . We got 10 turns in on 3 hours and will finish off next week- the advantage of a mate with a wargames room- and by turn 3, using Forwards options and taking a few ris...

Re: Battle of Osma

Love the video. Who would have thought that watching two middle aged gents playing games in the bedroom for two hours could be quite so much fun!!😂😂
