Sounds like guns should be able to retire by prolong, without getting disrupted, and then fire (at normal effectiveness) in the same turn.

As we all know, units can move their full movement allowance, then fire at full effect and then melee too, yet they can't remain stationary and fire two or three times instead, nor can they fire and then fall back. This really doesn't make a lot of sense! Consequently, the current system heavily fav...

<i>"... some type of activation system ..."</i> Should be feasible, since units/formations can start out fixed, presumably with the probability linked to the leader checks at the start of the turn. However, I suspect this would need to be an optional feature, as it probably won't be popular with a l...

<i>"I'm not sure how this would lower loses inflicted? Would recovered troops be removed from the loss counter on the victory screen, and if so, would VP levels also be lowered? Or, do we maintain VP loses and just add troops to reduced regiments during a battle."</i> If 50% of losses are actually s...

<i>"As for your specific idea, one strange effect would be the possibility to inflict more loses than troops engaged. Wounding the same guys twice. ..."</i> My line of thinking is that a proportion of the "losses" inflicted in fire and melee combat (maybe 50%, maybe more/less) aren't actually killed...

<b>Straggler Recovery </b>would be a great feature. This could work in the same way as fatigue recovery, with say 50% (ideally a % modifiable in the pdt) of all losses actually stragglers rather than killed. You've pointed out that <i>"... there is a lot more fighting in these games, than what was h...

There's no logical reason why guns shouldn't have ammo wagons, just like small arms. It's actually rather bizarre that this wasn't how artillery ammo was originally handled back in the BG days a decade ago. It's even stranger that this still hasn't been incorporated in one of the many engine enhance...

I agree, "The games keep on getting better and better."[8D] ... But there's still scope for a few more improvements. I suspect the most useful feature would probably be a more sophisticated ammo system, especially for artillery, which still doesn't have supply wagons. After that, the <i>straggler re...

Looking for Yankee opponent for a Campaign Atlanta game. Perhaps the 80 turn Reseca scenario 019 May 14-15 with weather? Preferably using the new artillery capture optional rule.

Good points. Perhaps since the guns can be captured and recaptured multiple times, it's awkward to (re)calculate their VP value? It would make sense to treat captured guns like captured supply wagons (but without reducing strength by 50%). Since the gun crew and horses aren't represented separately ...

I agree that a tight <b>skirmisher leash </b>would be essential if detachable skirmishers were ever to be contemplated for this engine. Also, rather than a 2 or 3 hex leash, I'd probably suggest that this should mean that the sub-unit needed to remain <b>adjacent</b> to the parent body and, ideally,...

Very valid point about cavalry riding down skirmishers. But I'd never imagined having lots of skirmishers for this engine, just the ability to create some. Ideally, it would be best if skirmisher subunits were just an extension of the parent unit - eg. only able to move 1 hex to the front or flanks ...

On the subject of detachable skirmishers, the Nappy engine has the following: 1./ Independent "S" skirmisher units (ie. with no parent body) 2./ Light (and also guard) infantry that can break down completely into skirmisher companies 3./ Line infantry that can deploy a single skirmisher sub-unit 4./...
