Barry, One thing I think I'll do for the game I've got coming up (a quasi-Fraustadt) is to have the Swedes roll using the ULB "Command Ratings" -- and having the Allies roll using the Playsheet Ratings. The Rules allow (out of average 6 rolls): 1 chance of Plodder 2 chances of Average 2 chances of G...

Barry, Before you finalize Rev 5, I want to send you (off-list) a number of minor inconsistencies that I noted in my read-thru of the rules.

Barry, One question I have has to do with Section 2.3 Cavalry Movement. You don't list Dragoons separately. Do they move the same rate as unarmored Horse (which I presume is your "Cavalry" category)?
