Re: Sk fire

T,

Artillery do not gain any modifiers for being shot at by skirmishers.

Re: Questions from the 100 Days book

M, There are three infantry Brigades, one Hussar Brigade, one Artillery Brigade (which doesn't generate an ADC I know) so that's 4 Brigades, but then what about the Empress Dragoons? Are they brigaded on their own (but being only one Regiment they don't qualify for an ADC) or should they be brigaded...

Re: Using Cavalry

We played our Ligny game against yesterday and this showed a good example of using cavalry. The player holding the French right pushed forward his light cavalry brigade against a large Prussian infantry brigade forcing the Prussian player to halt, alter his deployment and then adopt denser formation...

Re: Salute 2019

We simply made each builidng "section" a garrsion.

All in all a very good and quite tense game.
