Re: Just starting out questions

I think 4 bases of 6 will be, and look great. I think the more important factor is that others you are playing with use similar basing. The 4 bases of 6 is similar to the GDBe format which they would have 24 figure battalions mounted just like that. Although that scale is 1 to 20 it looks very nice ...

Re: Old Napoleonic Scenario Books

Here is how we use the extra skirmishers listed in the OOB.

For Skirmishers we use:
18 Figures; add 2 skirmish bases to the Brigade skirmish screen.
12 Figures; add 1 skirmish base to the Brigade skirmish screen.

Re: Old Napoleonic Scenario Books

I was wondering whether the GdB elite cav would be classified as battle or heavy in GdA. I guess the elite lights would tend to be classed as battle while the cuirassiers and other elite heavies might merit an elite status. Yes that is how we would play it also. Those are part of the exceptions whe...

Re: Old Napoleonic Scenario Books

Ah, cavalry ratings are a little more tricky. We use this as a guide line only. These are not as set in stone for us. You may find exceptions moving up or down a rating. GdB GUARD = GdA Heavy Cavalry GdB ELITE = GdA BATTLE CAVALRY GdB VETERAN = GdA BATTLE CAVALRY GdB LINE = GdA CAMPAIGN CAVALRY (A f...

Re: Large Unit

If you look at page 5 in the rule book under figure scale Dave states "For example, you could settle on 1:20 scale, where a Standard French battalion would be 28, 32 or 36 figures, whilst a British one would be 30 (or 40 figures if a Large battalion)".
Hope that helps.

Number of brigade skirmishers stands for Reservists Battalions.

How many Brigade Skirmish Stands for a brigade with 6 Reservist Battalions?

Are they treated as Line or Recruits when creating the Brigade skirmish screen?
