Re: Guns again

P, Right, I see where you are coming from. I agree with what's been said, it would seem a little gamey if a player were to squeeze his artillery onto the slimmest base possible in order to take advantage of the much reduced battery frontage. :roll: I would suggest that when playing games you use the...

Re: Guns again

N, I'm not convinced that this was always the case, though this interpretation has gained ground in recent years, esp. since the publication of that excellent book the Waterloo Companion! 8-) One has to bear in mind that batteries were flexible both in width and depth, thus we are dealing with gener...

All good so far but my question is as my original target of the charge is no longer going to be ch...
