- fair dos but before i buy some basic questions
are casualties dealt with by removing bases/ figures?
are skirmishers abstracted or do you get separate skirmisher bases?
- Casualties= bases removed (no 'casualty caps')
Skirmishers are represented two different ways:
abstractly by expanded fire range and reduced fire effectiveness against
"skirmish" rated units (based primarily on doctrine and effectiveness of
skirmish ability) and,
formation of unit (stands) for early "Tirailleur" formation (primarily
pre-1800 French revolutionary troops).
