Skirmishers or Sharpshooters

Post by Fettster »

Read the rules, the FAQ, and the summary of Q&A document and still no clearer.

When is a unit counted so sharpshooter? When it was noted as good skirmishers I.e. berdens rifles, or just any unit of less than 250 odd men so 3 bases? Or could we choose to deploy a 3 base unit as formed and adopt a skirmish line just counting as normal skirmishers?

And from a points cost is there a premium for counting as sharpshooter rather than a small unit that happens to be skirmishing?

Thanks
Kind Regards

F,

Yes, for ease of play any unit that is very small, i.e. would amount to three bases or less is considered a Sharpshooter unit.

No extra for points costing, just the number of bases you deploy modified by the troop grade.
