i dont know if this has been posted before but why are the riflemen in red? the old 60th KRRC wore red as a dress uniform when it was formed in 1755 but changed to a permanent green soon after. the 90th always wore green after formation in 1800...hence the name "green jackets" and can you do skirmish lines as i didnt see that on the demo?
sorry to make first post sound negative but i did enjoy the demo and was just intrested.

Well, I believe it has been mentioned several times, but I'm pretty sure therre won't be sqirmish lines.

Think I read somewhere that they did this to make troop recognition a little easier. I imagine the modders will change it before long.

I may be treacherous but many consider me to be the lesser of two wevils.
