Re: Happy New Year 2018!

Happy New Year to you as well Gunter, hopefully 2018 will be a healthier year for me than the last one with potential serious health issues for me and a number of falls and broken bones for my wife.

I’m using some of my hard earned brownie points to be there as long as Mrs Kirke doesn’t have another fall.

Sadly due to Mrs Kirke having a serious accident Governor Kirke is unable to defend his reputation.

Re: Quick Question on Orders

Another question. What's the difference between "To initiate a charge or assault" and "To charge home" on the morale check table? Where do I find it in the rules? I don't have the rules to hand at the mo but basically you test morale to charge, if you pass and charge your opponent they might have a...

Re: Quick Question on Orders

The point you mention is just to cut down how many order markers you need especially if you are playing a very big game.

Re: Quick Question on Orders

There are no brigade orders in BLB, perhaps you are thinking of Republic to Empire or you could be thinking about our relight we did of Augrim a few years back? I suggested in that game that we just counted up the number of brigades and then dice to see what percentage of brigades we could activate....

Re: Bonnie blue flag ACW rules

Glad you managed to eventually get back into the forum Kev. What I especially like about the rules is that they are so easy to adapt for any unusual situation. So far I haven't actually tried them for ACW but they have worked well for Crimean War and the Russo-Japanese War which was our latest outin...

I will sort out the questions tonight when I am home. Is it okay to do it here or would the Victorian wars section be better?
You've started here and it appears a number of people are following this so it's probably best to carry on here.

Steve
They might be in multiples of 5 but your starting factors run from 20% -60% depending on your quality then pluses and minuses onto those scores.

Re: Bonnie blue flag ACW rules

He is a member of the forum but he told me this morning that he's having trouble logging in so you can either ask me the questions and I'll try and answer them or pass the onto Kev.
He does have a Facebook page called The Iron Brigade which you could contact him on.

Re: Bonnie blue flag ACW rules

Is there any advantage in a field column. Also what counts as a supporting unit,in melee? And one that is not relevant for tomorrow but do cavalry get 2D6 or 3D6 when charging. Remember these rules are for the ACW so no attack columns just column of March and if you are shot at or attacked in this ...

Yes that's correct Steve. Enjoy your game, I'm sure Kev would be interested to hear your comments.
