Re: two questions regarding cavalry

Finally I have tested the rule clarifications above in a SP game where a group of eight french dragoons took part in an assault against a bridge blocked by a small british force occupying a walled farm nearby. The dragoons' first task was to scout possible fords along the river. By doing this they g...

Re: two questions regarding cavalry

Well, I didn't want to have markers with text on the playing field - so I went looking for iconographic representations of horse paces and found some nice ones in the web. Gave them a light green background, printed them 3/4" square, glued them on cardstock for to habe double-sided Halt/Walk and Tro...

First I have made me some Horse Pace Counters to indicate the current pace of a Cavalry Group or Formation: http://i1307.photobucket.com/albums/s596/dbamaerk/Diverses/4748b79d-9569-4fb0-a073-d089412437ef_zps0fe4...

two questions regarding cavalry

Having played my first SP games with infantry only, then added the odd artillery piece, it is now time to bring in cavalry. I have painted me a group of british 10th Hussars, next on the painting table are french Dragoons. Reading the SP rulebook, I have two questions regarding using cavalry: 1) "Ca...

Re: Sharp Practice Card ?

I understand and recognise that the Sharp Practice Card in the Action Deck is an integral part of the british forces' abilities in the game. Nevertheless from a rules concept point of view, there is no difference between the Sharp Practice Card and the Pas de Charge Card for example. On using them b...

Re: Sharp Practice Card ?

Thank you all four your help! Regarding the difference between the Action Card Deck and the Bonus Card Deck I have a preliminary remark and then a question: There are no TFL-rules players in my vicinity, as far as I know, so I have learnt the Sharp Practice rules from scratch. In the half dozen game...

Sharp Practice Card ?

I am not sure how to apply the Sharp Practice card correctly. Most bonus and national cards (like Grasp the Nettle, Pas de Charge, Thin Red Line, etc.) once revealed, are kept by the owning player until he decides to make use of them. However, for the Sharp Practice card, the rules say: "On this car...
