- The reason for the change in "armour" rules is to make the fights between (unarmoured) Determined/Impact Horse vs Cuirassiers more balanced. At the moment Cuirassiers are too often a better choice than "Swedish-style" Horse, as the effect of armour is very significant. By making "armour" worth "1/2 POA" the charging unarmoured horse have a better chance to win, which is more accurate in history.

- the change in autobreak is exactly as has been said here, which is to make Average troops a better choice especially for Horse. If you consider designing any army list, at the moment I think most players would agree that they start by taking the maximum of Superior troops, and then adding Average ones later. This change makes the decision on Average vs Superior into a more important decision.

Hi Tim,

thanks a lot for your explanations, it will help to play the less powerful armies.

Kind regards.

The budget change is not final. I think everyone agrees there is more work to do on this.
