Notes on Game

On Engage orders infantry may skirmish or volley fire, but not attack and melee.

There is no difference in skirmish effect if the brigade is in column of attack or line. However in a volley fire there is. Both 14 French and 5 Prussian have deployed into line in case the other advances to volley range (2”). However both are at present at skirmish range (4”).

Skirmish combat is often ineffective in these rules. A roll of 6 is required for a hit. 1D6 is rolled, plus 1, 2 or 3 depending on skirmish ability of brigade.

See Rule 11 for full details.
