2nd Edition skirmishers question

Post by Valmy92 »

About to play first edition for the first (and possibly last) time tomorrow. In 2nd edition do brigade skirmish lines and light battalions in skirmish formation still track casualties differently (with stand removal for the screen but not light battalions) or have they been made consistent? If consistent, which way? I’d like to do it the new way tomorrow if I can to minimize confusion (since we’ve also been playing Pickett’s Charge. Also, unlike Pickett, it seems that skirmishers can’t stand before formed enemy advance even if defending a. Linear obstacle or terrain?
Thanks,
Phil

V92,

Yes - they remain consistent with the 1st Edition.

Correct.
