  1. Paul, did the Spanish square take casualties? I noticed the blue die in the pic.

  2. Hi Justin

    Well spotted.

    Under the new rule we are play testing we have been using the small green dice to indicate the number of command point s that each brigade have. The dice by the Spanish square indicates that they have a maximum of 2CP. It should have been removed at the end of the move before the photo was taken!

    Casaulties will be indicated by a coloured circle with a number. Blue will indicate formed. Green will be Disordered. Yellow will be Shaken. Red will indicate Rout.

    There are no casualties yet on either side.
