Re: Shooting over non visibility troops

This came up in a club game a while back - could some musketeers fire at a P&S unit that was immediately behind a unit of dragoons lining the edge of an enclosed field (the latter being technically "invisible" as they were just a smidge over 4" from the firing unit).

Re: Attack! Devizes 18th/19th July - THEME

I think the idea is both to encourage appropriate numbers of cavalry for the period and to keep them on the table for more than a few turns of being "sniped at" by dragoons and artillery.

Re: New Competition Formats

Further to the Stephen Stead email, back in the 80s, the club I belonged to ran a Napoleonic competition with a twist: everyone brought along an army, they all went into a draw and you picked an army blind, with the one proviso that it couldn't be the one you'd brought.
