Re: Guns again

In fact once you take into account the random scattering Guns, that even grand Batteries didn’t deploy one battery directly in line and that a typical battery would have one limber and 2-3 caissons for EACH gun would make the depth huge and this is simply something we don’t represent well on our War...

Re: Battles of the 100 Days - Scenarios

Well we finally did it. Last night the Needingworth massive coalesced on mate Miles’ house to play the Gilly scenario.Flash Gordon, Stevo and I played the forces of light against the evil Germans played by Miles and Doozer. I’ll try and post some pics later when I’ve figured out the technology but d...

Re: Terrain and Combat

Top of page 62 ‘crossing walls, hedges and streams’ states that Infantry and cavalry crossing these at at upto half speed at no affect but, if more than half speed suffer 1 casualty. Seems reasonable (and permanent) penalty if assuming that all chargers moving over half normal speed.

Re: Battles of the 100 Days - Scenarios

Thanks Dave. That’s really helpful although Letort was actually a GdeB with the Dragoon’s forming one brigade of the Guard Heavy Cavalry Division.

The unit was also 800+ strong so should it be a large unit.

I know i’m Nit-picking, but guess who’s playing the French next week? 😂😂😂

Re: Battles of the 100 Days - Scenarios

We’re playing the Gilly scenario next week and I've noticed that Napoleon is rated as Incomparable with 5 ADCs. But, the French force has 5 Brigades (Excluding the Artillery) which should mean that the French have 6ADCs, 5 for the brigades and one for Napoleon being incomparable!? Am I reading this ...

Re: Using Cavalry

I think the change formation when enemy within 15cm/9” restriction only applies in certain circumstances during a charge response. Although, you cannot change formation when enemy at 5cm/3” unless it’s to form a square.

I think that’s right anyway.

Re: Corps commander optional rules and independent brigades

Well the rules are called General D’Armee and some huge games including Austerlitz, an AAR for which is on this forum, have been run using multiple Corps under a C-in-C. I think the rules would work really well if using multi players but may get a bit bogged down if playing one on one. Hey Alcibiade...

Re: Skirmisher tasking

I thought PL broke down the Fusilier battalion to reinforce his skirmish line, but I could be wrong. If he did this would it not just be a very strong skirmish line (10 stands). And for totting-up you’d have whatever the maximum no. of CDs that creates plus the Skirmisher Tasking bonus and any other...

Re: Opportunity charge.

Apologies to Polish Lancer, yes the chargers move 5cm rather than to the 5cm point. Your video does help greatly. I am now confused totally as having the initiative to charge seems to give little benefit other than to announce to your opponent where your charges will be and as the player with the in...
