Re: rules questions - tasks

1) No. Performing the Task is their activation so they can't move and Task unless moving would be an integral part of whatever task it was (and it's hard to see what that would be, but I suppose something might qualify). 2). I'd allow a Group to continue a Task they'd previously been set to perform ...

Re: New player unit list question

French line bns did have a piquet company in the 50s (and earlier). And when the Grenadier Company was detached, as was often the case, a second piquet company was formed by taking men from the line companies.

Re: New player unit list question

It's possible that Rich intended them to represent the Volontaires de l'Armée, who were drawn from line regiments on an ad hoc basis for use mainly as outpost troops.

Re: cost of core forces

They're all just rounded down to the nearest 5.

4 points isn't going to make much odds really, it's not really meant as a precise system

Re: Status 0 Leaders? (Austrian skirmishers 1809)

I'd say it would be better to simply disallow Austrian Status I Leaders from Activating any Unit (they can organise and rally as usual).

Re: British cavalry

Crusader, 1st Corps and Foundry do some decent 'generic Celt unarmoured cavalry' models although they're on the small side compared to, say, Victrix. But given they'll be in a different unit to any rather larger models you might have, they're okay. https://1stcorps.co.uk/product/unarmoured-cavalry/ ...

There's a decent reason for this. In CoC you'll generally have at least 3 sections and a couple of support units. Usually 6 o...
