Re: Destiny & multiple charges

O, 1. On p46 the rules state that if a player rolls an unmodified 2D6 in the Charge phase they go directly to the Destiny Table & apply the results. Sounds clear but do you still also apply the charge results? A - Yes - it's both. 2. If I have three infantry columns echeloned as in the diagram on p6...

Re: Sk fire

T, If faced by a large skirmish screen then you need to attack it, either by fire or by countering with your own skirmishers and also using the skirmish tasking or even artillery assault to drive off those skimishers. Both your guns and the garrison would be in range of the French skirmishers, (they...

Re: Dismounted Cavalry

A/B,

Dismounted Dragoons in close order would be the French dismounted dragoon a pied regiments of the Austerlitz campaign.

In all other situations, yes, dismounted dragoons would operate as skirmishers.

Re: Sk fire

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?

Re: Using Cavalry

We played our Ligny game against yesterday and this showed a good example of using cavalry.
