Re: Cavalry Shooting

Better at missile fire, sure, but there are a ton of other ways which they are worse. They can never form mobs, they roll fewer dice in close combat, and they withdraw after only a single round of fight (as opposed to two for Mounted Warriors). So no, they're not more effective overall, they're just...

Re: Advancing in Open Order

We found that a pretty good way to encourage people to space their troops out is to be more rigid about enforcing the gap rule. Absent "firing in 2 ranks," players will spread their troops out because it's the only way to establish a decent base of fire. This is especially important for forces like ...

Re: Basing

I play at 15mm, so I base individual troopers on #8 steel washers. My sabot bases are made from magnetic sheet. If I moved up to 28mm, I'd base them on 7/8" fender washers (which is what I do for CoC and Infamy).

Re: Beutepanzer Use

Does slapping an iron cross on a trackless Matilda II and using it as a pillbox in North Africa count? I've seen plenty of pictures of that sort of thing.
