1815: Battle For Gilly scenario questions

Post by Trailape » Mon Feb 03, 2020 3:45 am

I’m just about to play the first scenario from the 1815 Campaign supplement / handbook.
I have a couple of questions:
1. Napoleon is rated as ‘Incomparable’ with 5 ADC.
Is that including the additional ADC due to his rating?
Also,
2. is Letort’s Empress Dragoons an independent ’Brigade’ or are they attached to the Hussars?
If the answer is they are their own brigade then I calculate the French have 5 Brigades thus 5 ADC plus the 1 for Napoleon’s rating totalling 6 ADC.
Any help would be appreciated
Cheers

Letort being a single unit brigade does not generate and ADC, you need 2 units in a brigade to do that. The question has come up before.

N,
In the French order of battle you'll note that the Empress Dragoons under Latort are a single unit brigade.
All brigades are required to have a minimum of 2 units, thus Napoleon's Empress Dragoon escort "brigade" does not qualify for an ADC.
