It is interesting how completely different the handling of column formation is between HPS/JT's Civil War games and their Napoleonic games. In the Napoleonic games Column Formation is both a road Column formation and an assault column formation. It can actually fire at reduced rate which I guess mo...

Hi, Colonel,

In ACW all units in line can fire from a hex. You were thinking Napoleon.

Hi, General, The original question was how do we feel about meleeing limbered artillery with infantry in column. I'm assuming your answer is no. I guess a related question would be how do you feel about infantry in column meleeing Frank Stringfellow, dismounted and all by himself. The embedded melee...

Hi, John, I am against that house rule period, but the arguments for and against have been debated in several previous threads. In your example, the column can retreat before the artillery fires, since artillery cannot unlimber and fire in the same phase. If you are playing turn, and you have enough...

Just a couple of thoughts as I have been gone awhile and just recently found this thread. 1) I think the cavalry skirmish option has transformed Confederate cavalry from almost a liability into a valuable combat arm. They are now truly the eyes and ears of the army. When I proposed this option at Ti...

And, of course, any thing that attempts to simulate Napoleonic warfare would have to handle the cavalry charge and the various types of cavalry. Puts me in mind of another great SSI game of thirty years ago, Napoleon's Battles. Their approach to cavalry was four separate stances: that you could put...

1 supply point per 10 men. A division of 4,000 men with a 400 capacity supply wagon would exhaust this ammo over 24 turns of firing (offensive and defensive). This equates to 4 hours of fighting. The division would not be totally out of ammo. Some would be at full supply, some LOW AMMO, some NO AMM...

Speaking of highly rated units and fatigue, the story of the Iron Brigade, experiencing some of the highest percentage losses on July 1 and then pulling themselves up by the bootstraps to defend Culp's Hill, indicates that morale really should be a factor in recovery. I don't think Ed Johnson's div...

@mihalik As you mention Gettysburg, are there casualty figures for the first day somewhere? Just wonder what fatigue our units would have based on the casualties. To my knowledge, I Corps AoP was engaged almost exclusively on the first day. Their losses were 49.6% III Corps AoP was engaged on the s...

I would consider fatigue recovery whether or not playing with the optional rule, but I don' think I have played without the optional rule since it came out. Probably an interesting ancillary to the question is how it worked historically. We know Heth's and Pender's Divisions fought on the first day ...

I found this story to be worth noting. There are some errors but the story itself is factual.

Sounds like a great game is being created. I am very grateful to John Tiller for creating and improving the games we play, but it has never been easy to get suggestions through to him. I keep thinking of the old SSI Civil War games of the 80's. They had an interesting command and control system wher...

Now there is a name I haven't heard in quite awhile!

Good to hear from you, General Wister! Brings back memories of the good old days.
