Pike and shot vs arquebusiers

Post by divi8 » Mon Feb 09, 2015 10:04 am

I am new at this game and because English isn't my native language I am having a hard time understanding everything.

My arquebusiers were charged by a late tercio in the battle white moutain.
But I thought that Pike and Shot could not charge non light mounted troups?

So, arent arquebusiers not non-light mounted troops? Where did I miss something?

Thanks,

Nope. Arquebusiers are normal Horse.

Pay attention to Troop Type.

If a P&S unit counts as a KEIL , it can charge formed non light cavalry....

Later Tercios do not count as Keils, but Early Tercios do. Perhaps it was an Early Tercio that charged the Arkebusiers.

It does say "lighter equipped horse" in the description so I can see the confusion. I missed that too! No wonder they never dodge.
