Battleground 6 – Napoleon in Russia
Submitted by: rickHH
Keep in mind the rules regarding threat values.
Formation changes attempted while enemy forces are
nearby may fail. Lower-quality units cannot be expected
to change formation successfully on a consistent basis
in the presence of the enemy.
Given the broken terrain of the Borodino battlefield and
the lower quality of the troops, you will probably want
to move and fight in column. Infantry in line can easily
become disrupted by obstructed terrain and stacking with
other types of forces.
Don’t overuse cavalry charges! Never expect a charge to
carry a prepared enemy force. Artillery and infantry should
be used to soften up the position before sending in the
cavalry. Also, pay attention to terrain features prior to
conducting a cavalry charge. Cavalry need large areas of
unobstructed terrain to make an effective charge.
