Re: Source for WSS French Uniforms

There are plenty of free sites for French uniform/flag details if you don't want to buy books or CDs.

Re: Charge of the French Republican Guard

very cool, should bring some perspective to those who feel cavalry can run around all day..those horses were most likely blown after filming that and decidedly so had they met an actual enemy.

Re: Questions re BTLB rules

Hi and welcome to the boards. The first question I think you are asking if you square up after contact in a charge, the answer is no. You are not precluded from doing so if you feel it looks neater and decide to add it as a house rule. Is second question is about multiple charges on the same target?...

Re: Help with Danish Flag I.D.

Well according to Wiki, erhrm, that is the coat of arms for Frederick IV 1671-1730 and his cipher. Could be his personal standard as he commanded troops at the battle of Gadebusch in 1712.
Dan et.al. may know more.

Re: charging

Well all that Barry said and then there's the flow of the turn, the charge move is over and done with before the shooting phase. Once contact is made there is no shooting into melee. Now if that horse unit fails to charge and are just left sitting there, then fire away. :)

Re: Silly Question

I believe it was put in for people who wanted to play with larger battalions. I'll look deeper tomorrow. Someone else may chime in.

Re: Commander Ability

There were many playability vs realism discussions when we were play testing the rules. Some survivors are in the optional rule section. Not knowing how many games you have under your belt or if you play with like minded opponents. I would give a few games a try as written then modify with house rul...

Re: Commander Ability

Hi Brian, The rules are taking everything you just said into consideration but consolidating it into one roll. The command phase of the turn could get bogged with rolling for every commander. You are free to play how you would like by adding your house rules here and there, we have ours as well. I d...

Re: BLB1 vs BLB2

BLB1 simple, fast play, rules open to interpretation and can be aggravating if you like to be told how to handle every situation. BLB2 medium difficulty, rules more defined with additional information on gaming GNW and painting figures. Both are labors of love, well supported here, fun to play and g...

Re: BUAs

If you are within the 5" ZOC no you cant. Your men are mustering up into assault formations and getting ready to attack. By the rules those outside of the ZOC can return fire with modifiers. A smart defender will have troops nearby so he can feed men into the BUA to replace any you have killed. Doin...
