Artillery in SP2

Good afternoon all. We enjoyed another SP2 game last night using a light artillery piece for the first time in a scenario. Set in the Peninsular circa 1813 the British were attacking over a fordable stream, the French had a light gun covering one of the possible crossing points. We gave it a small e...

Re: "Stacking" Crashing Volley & other orders

In Captain Reid's reply I see something I don't understand.
I thought Crashing Volley and Step Out were applied by playing the respective numbers of command cards along with that leaders activation.
The good captain seems to suggest they can be applied without Leader activation.

Re: Uncontrolled fire

As an additional point when a formation is firing uncontrolled volleys, can it be made to fire a Crashing Volley by the allocation of the appropriate number of command cards? or is a crashing volley deemed to be a deliberate and arguably disciplined firing action?

Leader casualty in a formation query

Hi guys, I'm umpiring my first SharpPractice game (as opposed to playing) on Friday and running through the scenario on paper to make sure I had a good enough grasp I came up with the following situation. There is a leader commanding two infantry groups in formation. He is placed bang in the middle ...

SP2 Force Lists

Hi there, I'm looking at particularly the AWI force lists from the rule book and I feel that there may be some typos or copy and paste errors. I suspect others may have noticed these too. 1. British Regulars 1778 on - should they have 'Thin Red Line' characteristic? 2. Rebel Militia to 1777 - Should...

Napoleonic Light Infantry

Hi there, my apologies if these has been covered before but I couldn't find the answers on a search. My first question is; can Napoleonic Light infantry groups acting in line (8 fig groups) benefit from the extra D6 for movement or is this bonus only intended for lights in skirmish order? Also; from...
