Valour & Fortitude practice

Post by ochoin »

I've used the Valour & Fortitude rules twice, some months ago.

I often run simulations prior to games to try out tactics, re-fresh a rule set, or in this case, make sure I actually know & can use the rules.


So far, the rules seem relatively simple & uncontroversial…..we'll see.
You may notice I'm using 3 gun batteries instead of the recommended 1 gun model battery. Two reasons for this – 1 model doesn't give an artillery battery any presence or, I think, the necessary footprint. And, my collection has always used 3-4 models for a battery & I don't want to have 75% of my guns as superfluous.The only issue I can think of is the bigger batteries might clog up the battlefield but if so, I think we could allow the Rules' brigade interpenetration rules to apply to stray artillery batteries.

I'm very much looking forward to the game on the 13th.

Totally agree. It's like a two-rank pike "block" - it simply isn't.

We really enjoyed our two learning games of V&F. And agree that one gun model just isn’t enough!

ET, if you're referring to Queensland, you've got a nerve!

Now pardon me - I'm going out & need to put on my spats, find my homberg & cane. The hansome awaits....
