Re: Grading Troops

Thanks for your thoughts. I remembered that Barry had made some suggestions for grading the Huguenots in the Aughrim pdfs and so they are now sorted out. My thoughts were on Schomberg telling William that his Huguenots were twice the soldiers of any any other Regiment in his army. On further reflect...

Re: By way of an explanation

Really looking forward to you 17C Naval rules. Inspired to watch Captain Blood.....again. Are you ever going to get around to posting the final part of Whisky in the Jar on your blog? I’m sure i’m Not the only one interested to find out if Sarsfield and Galloping Hogan made their getaway.🙂

Grading Troops

In the course of the current lockdown I have managed to add several new Squadrons of ‘guard’ Horse and finally finish my Huguenot and Dutch battalions for our Elimination Gaming Club LoA Ireland project. I have two squadrons of Garde te Paard and a single squadron of Dutch Garde Du Corps added to th...

Re: First game and a few questions

@Flick40 Absolutely. Btw, your photograph is excellent. Really nice set up. I am so jealous. We are playing WoTK using 10mm Pendraken and refought the Break of Dromore a couple of weeks ago. The next LOA club battle is going to be a ‘what if’ scenario. The Battle of Moyry Pass will be representing w...

Re: First game and a few questions

@flick40

Why is squadron C not in a Supporting Role? Are you confusing Supporting and Reinforcing in your last reply?

Although not the best laid out question, please regard Squadron B and C as a two squadron Brigade of Horse.

Re: First game and a few questions

Sorry to keep going on but, Two Squadrons of Horse are in melee combat(A and B). B Squadron is being supported by allied Squadron C. The initial combat is a draw and both units are required to fight another bound/round of combat(in the same turn). Squadron C freely moves to reinforce Squadron B but ...

Re: First game and a few questions

Thanks for that. Bounds and rounds are the same thing then. If the result of a melee is that the opponents fight another round of combat, do they do so immediately or in the following round? I assume that it means the latter but confirmation would be good. Secondly, if melee or shooting ends with th...

Re: First game and a few questions

Thanks for your input Flick40.

Before I go any further. What exactly is a bound? I thought that it was just a consistent misspelling of ‘round’. Is there a difference?

Re: First game and a few questions

Morning Simon, I play Charges in much the same way as you have described in your second post. From your initial post though, it’s my reading that only the battalion being charged may give Incoming Fire against the charging Horse. Your supporting battalions of Foot may fire at the supporting Squadron...

The Break of Dromore

Last night, our club played our own version of the Break of Dromore having been inspired by several earlier posts on the same subject. Our battle was somewhat different and we took quite a few of our cues from Sam Campbell’s piece in the Dromore Historical Society’s journal. In this version of the b...

Re: Stand and fire question.

Of course, I may be exhibiting slight bias towards this particular interpretation as it has the potential to be of benefit to my Enniskilleners. Devastating volley with horse stopped dead at 4” followed by (no order required) charge in the following round. ⚔️

Re: Stand and fire question.

I get what you are saying here. It just seems a little odd when the charge distance of Horse could start at anything up to 16” away and the extreme range of a Musket armed battalion is only 12”. I quite like the idea of the musketeers holding their nerve to deliver a devastating close range volley t...

Re: All or Nothing Charge

Thanks, this confirms what my thinking was upon reviewing the appropriate section and is how we have been playing it since.

Re: Stand and fire question.

Howdy, Yeah, I think that it’s reasonable to draw similarities between the two situations for these purposes. I believe that your point from page 71 is to take into account that Foot only have a Charge distance of 5 inches and obviously Ragged and Controlled Fire cannot force a Charge home test at t...

Re: Stand and fire question.

Point 5 on page 116 in the Assault Rules section answered this question for me, though I can’t be sure I’m right. It seems that the level of fire received by the incoming troops on the Stand and Fire table determines where they stop. Ragged fire stops the attackers at long range and forces the Charg...
