La Haye Sainte Scenario questions
« on: September 03, 2014, 09:52:22 AM »
Hi, I just have a couple of questions about the La Haye Sainte scenario on page 85.

Are the French Cuirassiers  normal size units? 4 bases per unit as opposed to 6 bases as stated in the French Army list.

It appears that La Haye Sainte is depicted on the map as having 2 "town" bases, is this correct?

Thanks,  Hoagie

The heavy French cavalry are 4 bases.

When I last played the scenario, we did not use BUA, just put unoccupy-able buildings on the table. I had a sense from the scenario that it was not about capturing the buildings (they have been lost, but more capturing the centre ground of the battle.

I have played the scenario where the focus was on the farm house but this was with the Black Powder ruleset, which may be more suited to asymmetric battles then Lasalle.

Love the RHA rockets. Hope they look as impressive in my 6mm set up when I get round to buying some.

I'm looking at putting this scenario together myself sometime soon, but using 15mm figures - do I still use a 4'x4' table? And there are no Overall Commanders present, correct?
