Re: Skirmisher Firing

I have always assumed that it is a reflection of the better, more accurate weapons and more training as skirmishers. In the Napoleonic period only a part of the unit formed the actual skirmish line, I believe an ACW skirmish line would have more men in it often.

Re: Reforming Skirmishers?

No, I don’t believe that an unlimbered and deployed artillery battery counts as a Close Order unit. It is certainly not treated as such when being fired on, only limbered artillery are treated as a Close Order target. While I can see an argument for allowing Skirmishers to reform behind a friendly b...

Re: Sniper = Skirmisher?

Yes, a sniper is a very small target and will in all probability be in cover anyway or at least should be.

Re: Dispersing and an Elephant Test?

I have assumed that the unit immediately disperses and therefore there is no unit around to Take the Elephant test or potentially rout through friends. There are simply too few survivors to disrupt any surrounding units.

Re: Rally Step back

Yes I believe so. Step Back normally takes up all of a unit’s movement for the Turn. Since the Brigade is Hesitant they couldn’t advance forwards anyway.

Re: Grand battery

Not sure I’m understanding the question. Any batteries you combine into an Artillery Brigade or Grand Battery will retain their original calibre and range.

Re: Troop Types

The weapon entry for the British Light Dragoons is a typo as is that for the Loyalist Dragoons, both should have Sabres listed as their primary weapon. They could, however, carry carbines for dismounted action which can be fired while mounted though not very effectively. (p43). So ignore the Rifle a...

Re: Toofatlardies Groups.io

Richard Clarke is the moderator for the Groups.io TFL group and needs to approve applications. He mentioned approving some recently so he may just be busy.
If he doesn’t get round to it soon trying contacting him via the TFL website.

Re: PACIFIC WAR BAG THE HUN

The latest version has a red brown background with a couple of dogfighting aircraft laid out like an old Commando comic, in this case from the: “Flying Lard Picture Library, price 6d, Aus, NZ 1/-“. You will find some after action reports and pictures in the B...

Re: Shooting through infantry

I have had people fire through my infantry that was firing at them to try and hit the light mortar that was further back. I said at the time it didn't feel right, but as far as I could tell the rules didn't prevent it If I was running the game I would rule against it, but if that’s not an option in...
