Large units

Post by ulsterandy »

As a matter of interest large units get +1cd, +1cd if elite +1cd if first fire is being used on top of their normal 2cd . Thus British grds if large bn would be 5cd. For one round only then they would be 4cd on the superior table. Nassau would be 5cd but on the normal table until they reached 4 cas then drop to inferior table but still keep their +1cd for being large.

UA,

As a matter of interest large units get +1cd, +1cd if elite +1cd if first fire is being used on top of their normal 2cd . Thus British grds if large bn would be 5cd. For one round only then they would be 4cd on the superior table.

A large British guards battalion would receive +1CD for large and +1 CD for elite. So +2CD. If using the First Volley optional rule this would go up to +3CD for the opening volley. (There is no extra 2 x CD, the unit has a 2D6 roll against the volley table. See Specific Infantry Volley Rules point 1 p76.)

Nassau would be 5cd but on the normal table until they reached 4 cas then drop to inferior table but still keep their +1cd for being large.

A large Nassau unit, (not graded as elite) would receive the large +1CD benefit.

Even when reduced to 4+/8+ casualties a large unit still maintains its +1 CD benefit.

Ah tys dB for that my miss understanding of the fire, thought that all units had 2cds to start with then you add the extras if they apply.

On pages 73 and 76 it says 2cd from that I took it that the base was 2 CD then the rest were added in OK different colors but still it add to the hit score.
