Re: Wheeling as part of a Charge

Chaps, the reduction in movement for the 'realignment' prevents any need to measure a 'wheel'. You won't need the template for this. The template is meant for use in ordinary wheeling no a pre-charge realignment which is pretty much down to chance. A realignment during a charge simply allows you to ...

Re: Wheeling as part of a Charge

Wheeling is at half rate for close order infantry in line so, infantry (except Swedes, loose order and tribal infantry) can only wheel two inches. Horse can wheel 4 inches in line or 8 inches in column of march. Charging cavalry which realign by wheeling do not do it the way you have described. See ...

Re: French Guard cavalry

The rules allow for a certain degree of 'localization' . So, no blanket GA are Bullet and French are Blade in the NYW and a reversal in the WSS. More of - the majority of each side follows the accepted pattern and an agreed proportion of each can be the opposite ie: NYW French mainly Blade but an ag...

Re: Imperialist Cuirassiers

Hello Joe, the Imperialist special rules supersedes the disorder definition in the rules. Yes the rule applies if they have lost the first round of combat - in fact, this is the very circumstance it was created for. Second situation is exactly as you fought it. One casualty is always taken by each s...

Re: Gun Carriage Colors

during the TYW/ECW period some may well have been painted but I don't think specific colours were specified as there were no national armies and the regulation of such items was in most cases not standardized.

Re: LOA Armies

I am just working on the Army Builder guides for the new GNW/Eastern Wars supplement to Beneath the Lily Banners 3rd Edition. The book is being laid out now. My suggestion for a starter army for the Imperialists would be: 4- 6 infantry battalions (pikes if pre 1685, none if later) - these could be '...

Re: BLB 3 Charging retreating unit question

Sorry to be a bit late to this Gentlemen, the joys of a mobile career. The interpretations offered by Joe and Adam are good for me although I may add some perspective for consideration - Horse in retreat are not cohesive and pretty much trying to get away from whatever upset them as quickly as possi...
