I'm in love.
Frank and I played two games tonight - both at the 5-point Skirmish level.
I played Swedes, consisting of two banners of dragoons, two banners of reiters, and a lolcannon.
Frank played Cossacks, with one giant blob of Sotnia, some Register sotnia, and two stands of scouts. (Also, I have no idea what any of those are/mean).
I lost both of the games we played. The first was a slaughterfest - I used the Reiters like charging knights, and they most definitely got destroyed. In the second game, they still ended up running away due to the overwhelming ranged firepower of the Cossacks, but I think I got the hang of them a bit more.
My MVPs were definitely the Dragoons. Those guys are super nasty, especially when garrisoned.
|My first turn of movement. A platoon of Dragons advances to the house on turn 1 with the help of it's recce deployment.|
|And some Reiters outflank on turn one. Sadly, they had to come on, even through I didn't want them until later. Now they're too far away to issue orders to.|

|Dragoons dismount and prepare to storm the building.|
|Reiters attempting a Caracole maneuver...|
|Those pesky scouts chasing off the outflanking reiters with their nasty long range rifles|
|His register troops hit the garrisoned building in close combat, but bounce.|
|Run little Reiter, run!|
