1. If a column declares a charge on a line and the line passes its morale test with good morale the column must halt and deploy into line instead of completing a charge.
2. Remove the +1 morale bonus for charging units
3. A British volley is defined as 6 or more figures firing at close range (not 12 as previously, to allow disordered units to still have a morale effect on chargers).
|The French come on in the same old style, except that somehow they seem to have shot Picton!|
|The Swiss make a charge on the Brunswickers who become disordered following their morale check. However, after receiving a half-effect volley and canister fire the Swiss are stopped in their tracks.|
|On the other flank, the Black Watch have survived their 'unit charged' morale check forcing the 9th legere to deploy into line.|
|Next move and its the turn of the Poles and 45th ligne to charge.|
|Both are disordered and stopped by the enemy musketry. The French will have to settle for a fire-fight.|
It made for a very interesting little game and I liked the subtlety of changing formation while the next column moved up to have a crack at the line. It was quite satisfying to see the French attack stall and then fail, however I do wonder if this has tipped things too far in favour of the defence. When I get more time, I will try a game with tweaked morale factors only.
