Use of Cards to dictate play

in our game yesterday, we used cards to run the game. This was the La Hermandad scenario where you have up to six French brigades taking on four British/allied.

Re: new to GDA

And yes on Vets for most of those. You might even make some of those Elite - 95th and 52nd. I wouldn’t make highland regts veteran by default. I think you start with rating everyone line and then make a case for moving the rating up or down accordingly.
