Skirmishers or Sharpshooters

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

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.

Thanks. Can you have a unit of just 2 bases?
