    (re the Royalist cavalry post charge) Is the effect because of the number of times that Royalist cavalry temporarily ‘abandoned’ the rest of their army to the single purpose of pursuit. It seems an easy way to deal would be to dampen down the risk of lengthy pursuit, but which reflects history better?

    Hi Norm, I’ve answered more fully on the blog, but basically I think the effect is fair enough historically, but given that the tactical advantages of charging in the first place seem so marginal, it tips the risk-reward balance for me as a player.
