        Casualties= bases removed (no casualty caps ) Skirmishers are represented two different ways: abstractly by expanded fire range and reduced fire effectiveness

          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).
