For me that would be the Peninsular War!

Hi Dave,

Would love the Peninsular to be next please?

By the way, for we Antipodeans, the Lardies Summer Special which is before the Hundred Days comes out when exactly? Please don't say "The Summer" :^)!

Cheers

Carlo

Hi Carlo,

There's no set date for the Special, it gets released once it is done. Sometimes pulling it all together can be easier than others and it comes out that bit earlier, other times it can be a bit later for the same reasons. Rich has a couple of things to finish off before he starts the Special in earnest, so it won;t be anytime soon. By the end of July would be a good guide, but only a guide.

Kind regards,

Richard aka Monty Lardo

One against (more!) Peninsula War and in favour of a Danube 1809 campaign

I imagine that as in GdB each regiment present in the campaign will have a quality rating and a suggested strength. Just wondered how the ratings in particular were arrived at. Do we know, for example, that the 13e Legère and the 17e Ligne were "veteran" units as opposed to "line" or is this just a best guess?

C,

The main influence is how the battalion, regiment or brigade performed in the actual battle combined with any knowledge we have of their battle history and commanders. Other than that its simply grading regiments as per the general rating of the time. (And very occasionally it will be down to game balance.)

E.G. French Light infantry can be graded as Veteran not only to represent their potential greater espirit de corps but as a way of distinguishing between the fighting qualities of the various French regiments, otherwise they would all be Line! The same can be applied to the Light infantry and Grenadiers of various other nations.

Occasionally you have a very good brigade with a good commander within a certain campaign, e.g. if we followed Davout's corps in 1809, there would be good reason to rate these better than average. The 13th Legere and 17th Line, for instance, were generally always brigaded together and were both veteran formations, so we are unlikely to grade them as Recruits or Reservists. Likewise when we have distinguished Allied regiments they could also be classed a better than average, though, of course, the reverse also applies! ;)
