Dearly beloved Brethren,
if I can distract you for one moment from your volume of Horace Walpole's Letters, and ask you to put your pipe down and consider this question; in order to gain some immediate feedback for the 'Vauban, Shandy and Frederick Garden Rules'...
In the Horse and Musket era would it be a reasonable result that a Heavy Cavalry type regiment would lose if charging a formed Regular Infantry Regiment in line - with a Sqn of Dragoons on the flank in support?
Please note - the Infantry stood firm and fired - taking out the Commander and Colour - which are significant as a trooper = 1, Sgt/Musician = 2, Officer/Colour =3, Commander = 4. Therefore the regiment lost 7 pts out of a total possible 16. Even with their double points for charging home + heavy cav bonus - they could not match the 32 + points against them.
