French Cav Corp Spring 1813

Post by mic » Wed Jul 02, 2014 12:38 pm

Hi All
just after some advice
what does "A divisional formation (representing a full historical corps) must have at least half its bases as LC" mean?

does it mean that at least half the cav bases in a div must be light cav OR
at least half the cav bases in the corp must be light cav ?
thanks
regards Mick

The notes introducing the army hold the answer. The Cavalry Reserve "Corps" was barely larger than a normal division, so for game purposes, a cavalry corps of this time is represented as a division (the 12 bases mentioned is not, I think, mandatory to follow).

So, when you make a cavalry division with this list it is actually representing a historical cavalry corps. For games purposes it is classed as a division. At least half the bases must be light cavalry.
