GeneralShmuel it will prob be better to put me and giumarello70 on separate teams and put us with one of the newer players each, more fair that way :)

Maybe a stupid question:

What do the symbols mean? Squares Infantry, Trianlgle Cavalry and Stars Artillery?

And what are valid orders?

Yes you have the symbols correct.
That's a point of having a paryner , discuss with him what you guys want to do and he should help you comic up with the orders, maybe look at the orders he's sending.

That just signifies Austrian infantry in the British coalition. Because there's no need really. Also I need to point out that the Austrian cav is a lot stronger than the French cav as they're heavy cav whilst the French is light cav. Also as a tip the Bavarian infantry aren't the best so use then wisely (if you want look at the battle reenactments thread somewhere and you'll find this battle that I GMed

I think we're teammates in this practice battle. Couldn't make it earlier, sorry about that. Can you tell me what I can do in a battle? Literally, what are the generally available options? Entrench, move , shot, chicken out?


Thank you.

Everything you want it to be, you decide what you want your guys to do (like the Napoleon Total war if you played that game) and the GM (me) decides if the opponent has ordered his army better than you (in which case you're guys would lose) or worse (and you'll win). I'll send you in a PM my orders for the small battle I had against the Chinese this turn and you can see what you want there. You can also ask your partner to help you out and discuss the team tactics you'd like to employ.
