Sirs,

I hope that players also should use of more lines and extended lines in formations of units - battalions. Not only in fights, so, in marches through battlefields too. Overall this is a pre Napoleonic era. Almost the end of era. Both sides, naturally. :thumbsup:

The French certainly maneuvered in columns. Also the Allies. Lines were used by this time for minimal movement.

You will find a lot of obstructed terrain in this title. I don't think its realistic to ask the players to maneuver in Line formation. :frenchwink:

Yes, I see a lot of fields with wheat, rice, others crops and orchards with olives and grapes. And other obstructed terrains too. Overall, It will be difficult. We don't forget that column is a line, line behind line, simply. Never mind. So, good job, well done, Bill. :thumbsup:
