Re: Prussian Army 1806-07 Adaptations

For what it's worth I've found quite a few order of battle inconsistencies for the Prussians. Perhaps it's because of the debacle so soon after the war began and perhaps its because of the habit of ignoring order of battle organization and assigning units to commanders willy-nilly (I note that the ...

Re: FOG N 2nd Edition - it's back!

I think to add to Brett's points. A 800 point game is also an influence on the v2. At 800 or even 900 points (which I play more of) you are really talking about a smaller Corps. Particularly 00-07 the OB for a Corps is approximately 1 battery per division and the equivalent of 1-2 Corps level batte...

Re: FOG N 2nd Edition - it's back!

I suppose the crux of my argument is that, for many lists, a single attached artillery base in a division can leave it quite vulnerable, especially if it's an unreformed army with a current limit of 1 skirmisher and 1 artillery attachment per division. Adding to the challenges for such an unreformed...

Re: FOG N 2nd Edition - it's back!

It's safe to say that whatever changes are/are not made, we are not going to get unanimous approval on this one. Our starting point in looking at this has been the v1 definitions. The rules describe artillery units as "Position Artillery" - 'artillery deliberately placed in a position where it coul...

Re: Prussian Army 1806-07 Adaptations

I think part of the 06-07 Prussians and Russians. (possibly 05 Austrians and Russians) need to better reflect their command and control handicaps. I think it was a real lost opportunity to not reflect these better. Limit them to less divisions (unless allied). Limit the first couple Divisional comm...

Re: Prussian Army 1806-07 Adaptations

1) Prussian Royal Guard: These formed a brigade in the reserve corps at Auerstadt and consisted of IR 6 (Grenadier Guard - 1 battalion) and IR 15 (Garde - 3 battalions including the Leib battalion. I suggest rating these the same a grenadiers but with the status of 'guards'. So, Average Veteran Gua...

Re: FOG N 2nd Edition - it's back!

On the artillery thing, it's a result of focusing on what an artillery unit represents. We have attachments to largely represent supporting divisional artillery and artillery units to represent massed or position artillery formations (of 2-3 batteries). These position artillery were usually corps r...

Re: Better Armour - proposal (updated)

Probably the last bullet needs to be "Protected Horse, Protected Determined Horse or Protected Cavaliers"; otherwise someone is sure to argue the adjective "protected" only applies to the first noun in the list.

Re: Prussian Army 1806-07 Adaptations

Thanks for sharing Shadowdragon. As part of the work we're doing on v2 updating the army lists is in scope. Rather than take it all on ourselves, we thought we might open it up to the community of experts. So if anyone has any particular field of expertise and has time, we'll be asking for voluntee...

Re: Prussian Army 1806-07 Adaptations

Some nice research here. Would that mean the Guard and the lancers couldn't be used together? Also do you think you should be able to use cuirassiers in mixed divisions as the list says you can? Further on cuirassiers in mixed divisions...here's an account about Auerstadt where each of the main div...

Prussian Army 1806-07 Adaptations

I find that the current list works for the Prussian army at Hohenlohe, but not for the other armies such as the main army at Auerstadt and and L'Estocq's corps. Here are some of the troop additions: 1) Prussian Royal Guard: These formed a brigade in the reserve corps at Auerstadt and consisted of IR...

Re: AARs

Definitely felt that 4 base units were fragile. Agreed! And even more so under V3. Tried the 6 packs of superior legions initially in 3 ranks. It helps, but the Roman player can't just trust to a straight forward charge and wood-chip away. I'm guessing it's now about a 60-40 encounter in favour of ...

Re: AARs

I also wonder if some field fortifications for the Romans might be useful. Funnily enough I've just finished reading Caesar's alleged account of the Gallic conquest and I was struck by how often the Romans appeared to rely upon FF. Try your Legions as Superior in 6's but deploy 2 wide and 3 deep wi...
