Re: Pursuit after Cavalry melee

I'm not sure where the argument lies or you missed my point. These rules are years old so I wouldn't expect an update anytime soon but they are popular in certain circles. Unfortunately the rules are vague on this point. I gave my solution and the rules author agreed. You are free to add a written a...

Re: Pursuit after Cavalry melee

Hi, How you play this is going to come down to your and your opponents experience. The rules are simple, fast-play and unfortunately not written for detail on every situation. There are many ways you could play this out and this would be a very long post if I tried to go over each one. Here's a coup...

Re: WSS Dutch OOB and morale grading

Hi Carlo, Well you're headed in the right direction because it comes down to research. How did a unit perform historically to give it a BLB rating to match? I'm not versed in the Dutch army but I'm sure others are and will chime in with better info. Most of the Dutch troops are going to be rated dri...

Re: LoA/NYW Flags

This is a good site to start with. He put a lot of work into these flags and covers most units. Not all flags are from the LoA period but in lieu of buying flags these work wonderfully. http://www.drapeaux.org/France/Ancien_Regime/Infanterie.htm This thread has additional information http://www.leag...

Re: Battle of Aughrim Game - Use of Command Shot

The use of command shot should be very situational and scenario driven IMO. Aughrim is well documented that they were present for the Irish and gave a good showing. Over use of them and they become like Napoleonic skirmishers and several more (house) rules would need to be created to cover more situ...

Re: Battle of Aughrim Game - Use of Command Shot

I'm not sure about the final ruling for commanded shot but there are a couple threads on it if you scroll down. Based on those discussions they are single stand independent units on defend orders. They don't re-attach to a parent unit but if they did I would think they are just absorbed and don't in...

Re: 1st game

1: make the unit wiped out do his rout move first and then remove the unit. This is because the unit isn't really wiped out in place but destroyed as a fighting force so it would still run first, then fade away. The winner makes the pursuit roll normally and this situation you mention no longer beco...

Re: A new Range of Vikings!

Link isn't working. :cry: Steve painted my first few units of LoA figures from Dixon back in the 90's when I was living in England. Great work and has since started his figure line which are amazing as well.

Re: Shouting at the Telly (Man in the Iron Mask)

As retired Air Force all my friends hated watching movies like Iron Eagle or any other movie that depicted airplanes on which we had worked. They never got it right and was usually laughable in how they showed all aspects of the military. As for historical movies, when Braveheart came out I remember...

Re: Questions about Trotters-charging/shooting

Trotters can shoot their pistols whenever their card comes up, out to 8" inches. They get no reload marker. They are weaker in melee because they trot in vs the gallop, the reduced die is because of a lack of shock on impact.
