Caracole advanatge
« on: May 16, 2012, 12:07:40 PM »
So an idea from the TMP threads...

If we wanted to create an advantage of  Caracole for cavalry, - i.e. regular cavalry can shoot to hit on 6's and everything else is like infantry for shooting, how much would that advantage cost?

I don't really want to use this but just wondered what others thought. I don't see it been that advantageous -say maybe 4 or 6 pts.

If irreg cavalry can shoot then I could see that being a bigger advantage - maybe 8 to 12 pts in cost.

What do you think?

I'd say 6 points, since it's a pretty minimal advantage.  And it would have to come at the expense of being mutually-exclusive to "Cavaliers,"  and maybe even negating the "Stirrups-In"  modifying card.

it is no fun playing with a crippled army, but equally if you have one bad player and one good player (or just one guy who has a really bad day),
 then round two is going to see one super elite army with everyone else having to play catchup with it.

it is very easy to get a very one sided win if your death rolls go the right way - and it only takes a couple of promotions to end up with a strike force of 4 or 5 elites if you started with Maison already.

that is a lot of points advantage, and to me it does look like the optimal starting force is going to be maison, depots, 3 regulars (depot) 2 elites, 4 conscripts, and then play around with your other points (irregulars and guns) - knowing that your entire army is expendable, since it can never get worse if it dies, and could get better if it lives.
