Re: MELEE: Casualty Distribution

Hi Scott, I can see nothing in the rules that gives guidance on how melee casualties are distributed. For firing "Units firing against multiple targets spread the fire and casualties as evenly as possible against all eligible targets". I agree with your logic, all the units are participating in the ...

Re: "Whipped" Skirmishers! Do they "unform" friends

Hi Trailape, I would say yes. Page 49: Interpenetration (Passing through friendly units): Skirmishers may move through any troop type at normal speed, including double quick, without effect. But....

Re: Risk to Generals

Re: Glory!

Hi Dave, I forget who it was but a British officer observed that "every ounce of authority that officers in the Confederate army possessed was purchased with their own blood". Attaching an officer by using 'Glory' seems to me to be an excellent way of trying to replicate that. At the moment you can ...

Re: Too Fat Lardies & General de Brigade Forum Answers Version 2

Hi Joe,
Well, no there isn't.
I don't play Napoleonic wargames (at least not yet) so I don't have the same drive to do something for General d'Armee.
I am a bit of a rules collector so I have recently bought a PDF copy of GdA just to see what its like so you never know.

Tony
