RETREAT question ...

Hey guys, Playing a game last night and have a question. During my Maneuver phase I used a single unit action to rally a French foot artillery battery from RETREAT (took the division leader, brigade leader, and brigade support to get it to an even roll, thank god I passed). I was successful and remo...

Re: Game Pictures ...

Hussars pass their control check for seeing the Uhlans ROUT. Jay Jay, cavalry don't test for seeing other cavalry routing. It sounds and looks like a good game and like everyone else, I love your gaming room. :mrgreen: Cheers Dave Ahhh, indeed --- "Has seen friendly infantry ROUT" ... whoops ... to...

Re: Game Pictures ...

Jay that is a really wonderful set up. The game looks great and it appears that you are playing on the set of CHEERS! Where is Ted Danson???? Look forward to the game report but i think the general staff's of both armies would have been mightily impressed by your beautiful deployments! Ted is takin...

Re: Game Pictures ...

Alright --- here goes ... after a couple of months off we wanted to keep things simple so we played your "line it up and have at it" kind of game ... I know, boring, but it kept things simple. AUSTRIAN/RUSSIAN OOB (Competent): Austrian Infantry Brigade (Seasoned) 2 x German Infantry Battalions (D) 1...

Re: Game Pictures ...

Hi guys! Those are "28mm" --- one of the French brigades is using Foundry but the rest are all Front Rank. We left most of the cavalry out since we hadn't played for a couple months and had a new guy joining us (who also had a great time). Battle report forthcoming --- I didn't take notes but I can ...

Game Pictures ...

Hello all, After a busy few months back on track with RtE games. Played a game last Sunday and had a blast --- it was a total bloodbath! Russians have been added --- a full brigade (new addition) with those big 6 gun batteries ... I love them! Here are some pictures: http://www.gfhwg.com/Galleries/J...

Thanks for the creative ideas on refit William. I actually reinforced the seams of my reference sheet with scotch tape and they are much happier now. I initially found myself flipping a lot looking for things in the reference sheet, but once I remembered to look at the top of each page that lessened...

Wow --- excellent discussion. I always like to refer back to "You don't know, you weren't there!" :-) I always favor some playability over historical accuracy. "Interruption to continuity" is a great way to put it. To be honest one rule set doesn't make everyone happy --- but after years of rule set...

I am a big fan of the refit rule. First, four rounds of shooting is going to do some hurt at effective range or better. I think this is a very inovative method for strongly encouraging smart use of artillery. Rambo doesn't show up with his 54,000 round magazine and fire continously for hours :-) In ...

Hello! I don't attest to being an expert --- but based on my experiences so far I would say that first a division can be of very different sizes. For example, a "small" division could be two brigades ... one infantry brigade with 3-5 infantry battalions and the second brigade with two cavalry regime...
