Re: Unformed and Skirmish order

Hi John, To answer your questions: Unformed Units: Unformed regiments may reform whether the brigade is obeying orders or hesitant (5th point from the top on page 32). The regiment reforms in the movement phase assuming that it does not move. Note the act of reforming is considered movement so if th...

ALL VOLLEYS: Long Range

Hi Dave, This is a follow up question to your response to Deadbeat Volleys. In your response you said: Regiments in column always use the deadbeat volley line and halve any casualties they inflict. A large regiment still gets its +2CDs but any casualties are halved. All Small or Standard Regiments i...

Re: Unformed

Hi Mike, Any unit that is unformed takes a full move to reform. Therefore your unformed limbered artillery can reform or unlimber but not both. It could unlimber and subsequently fire in the fire phase but it would then suffer a -2 penalty for moving and a -2 penalty for being unformed. Presumably t...

Re: CSA Gun-Battery Effectiveness

Hi Chris, OK, this is my two-penny worth. If you look at the artillery firing tables I think the biggest potential disruption on there is the Elephant Test. In this respect the six-gun batteries really outgun the four-gun batteries. At Close range the six-gun batteries have a 58.34% chance of scorin...

Re: Deadbeat Volley

Hi Nigel,
Yes, I agree with you. The way Dave has it laid out in his response makes more sense to me too.

Re: Deadbeat Volley

Hi Dave,
That all makes perfect sense but..

Currently the rules say that a large regiment in double line would use the deadbeat volley and 2 CD with no halving of casualties.
Is point c) a rule change or did I miss something?

Re: Faltering Brigades

Hi John,
I thought that too when I re-read Dave's earlier response on counter charging cavalry but I am not familiar enough with GdA to really know.

Re: Faltering Brigades

Hi Mark, There is nothing in the rules to suggest how counter charging cavalry should move but in a previous answer Dave Brown has said that it is the Charge Combat Result that determines whether your cavalry counter charge or run away. Mounted Cavalry Close to Melee You as the player don't actually...
