What we don’t always have much of a sense of is the die roll equivalents of the actual battle, if that makes any sense. At Waterloo we know that Napoleon was unwell, with piles. We don’t know if that should be shown by consistently bad com and die rolling, or some sort of restriction in the game set up. At Talavera a British cavalry regiment charged across an unseen ditch, too small even to be shown on a wargame table, became disorganized and lost a melee badly to their French counterparts: did they roll a ‘1’ there?
I do all my own stunts.
