Re: Scenarios for GdA using GdB books

J, To convert them into GdA units, is it just a matter of calculating the number of men in the unit, then determining the GdA size accordingly? Yes. Are the unit ratings (grenadier, recruit, campaign or battle cavalry, etc) listed in the GdB scenarios as well? GdeB has slightly different ratings: Gd...

Re: Artillery Firing Overhead

N66, Re: After quite a bit of discussion, emails, tantrums we agreed to Ban any shooting though a brigade area of operation. You can still shoot from within it and we have, so far, allowed overhead fire as long as there is the required clearance but we may revisit this as well now! Shooting through ...

Re: Melee reforming/ firing after charges/ mass column

All, Q1. Cavalry unformed after winning a melee may not move again until the next turns movement phase . I played it as the next turn but I'm thinking it may be the following turn. So let's say the cavalry became unformed after their melee on turn 7 then it would be turn 9 before they can form up? A...

Re: Deadbeat Volley

N, a) Regts in column always use the deadbeat volley line and halve any casualties they inflict. (A large regt still receives its +2CDs but any casualties are halved.) b) All Small or Standard Regiments in Double Line use the deabeat volley and halve any casualties they inflict. c) Large regts in do...

Re: Interpenetration fire or not to fire.

Ricky, If the unformed/interpenetrated unit was a support then it cannot fire as it must retire with its routed lead unit. If the unformed/interpenetrated unit was not a support then it may fire with an unformed volley. In future the revised ruling will be: "No units may fire at a Charging On! unit ...

Re: Respective differences

I must admit I'm a bit lost reading this, so hopefully I've got the gist of Pickedon's issue. You can choose any unit in an assaulting brigade to be the lead unit, as long as it fulfills the usual charge requirements. If you have a supporting unit ahead of your lead unit, (but nonetheless still with...
