Thanks for the quick answers, Gentlemen. I could not find it stated anywhere in the rules that stationary cavalry only killed on a six. Now, something else has cropped up. There are three battalions of infantry in line side-by-side. The eejit (drunkard, buffoon, clown) commanding the cavalry squadro...

Ray,

Thanks - you nearly stopped me from proceeding any further! Those are excellent, Sir. Mine will not be in the same league as these works of art but, they will be mine.

Cavalry Charge

Once again, thank you Gentlemen. My target is to have by Christmas: 12 battalions of foot in three brigades, 18 squadrons of horse in two brigades, six guns, two regiments of dragoons with mounted and dismounted bases and a two-base unit of converged grenadiers. And that's just the French side! Wil...

Gentlemen, I am just about to embark on purchasing some lead and wish to thank all of you for your input. I have decided on a combination of Front Rank and Reiver so, I have one last question only: Are these ranges completely compatable in that I could have figures from each on the same base? Your h...

Iain, Transport is the problem. Despite hsving driven for over forty years, my last license was issued in Papua New Guinea and I would need to sit the test again. I couldn't be bothered. I have been back in Scotland for five years now and get around on public transport. The old bus pass is a boon to...

David,

Thank you very much. I have a sneaking suspicion that I will go with Front Rank. Are Reiver figures compatable with these?

Regards,

Good Day.

Hi all, I am just over sixty years old, recently returned to Motherwell after living in the South Pacific for the last twenty-odd years and have wargamed since I was about thirteen years old. I still have a copy of Donald Featherstone's seminal work "War Games" that I nicked, sorry "rescued from det...
