Do not know if that as already been but what is your favourite unit? :confused: all the units are good of course but everyone should have a favourite. Mine is the British Household Cavalry i use these to protect my cannons and shoot down approaching men with there muskets. :)

Household cavalry, for sure, as I've said many times before and will say it again. The perfect raiding/flank attack/suprise attack/fast response infantry really.

By the way captain crunch, glad to see you are now active on the forums. May I ask if your game came? If so, maybe we could play multiplayer sometime.

NOTHING BEATS A HORDE OF MILITIA, BABY!

I like feeling like I am the leader of a press gang :) Running around with sticks and beating up army units is FUN!

Yeah, a wild horde (better: HUGE horde) of the cheapest militia beats everything. No tactics, no nothing, just drunken Celt-style assault usually slaughters the opponent. Works 95%.

I dunno about that one 3 line formation of the Black Watch would rape militia with musket fire before they reach them regardless of how angry they are. ;) And for the lucky ones that do get through then they will enjoy nice cold steel.

Black watch is the highlander regiment and there tough ! THEY HAVE NO FEAR!

Militia is only good for the first ERA. After that they get their heads handed to them. :)

I like to use Household cavalry against lots of malitia, fire a volley then when the malitia charge turn and run, then stop, fire a volley and turn and run and so on and so on untill the malitia has ceased to be :) .

Blackwatch for anythng else

Not if my Inf go into Sq Formation then you just throw yourself to death on my sharp pointy Things then when you form to attack again I just pour lead into yuo retreating troops. until no-one is left alive. :D :

I like the Cuirrasers. I use them to destroy other's artillery and harrass the rear and flanks of the enemy line.

you say that until they get square formation. I actually tried a scenario with 1 unit of line infantry against the max # of units of russian militia. I used square formation and even though it took some time. My men won with only 22 casualties

and also all you have to do is square formation, and when the enemy backs away and runs, put line into gear. Fire, then get back into square when they come for more. Rinse and Repeat = Win


but my favorite unit is the congreve rockets. Devistating to everything in bunches. take 3 of them backed with some form of protection and the enemy is going to be slaughtered before they reach them with charge :D

Lancers: Cheap, a lil' slower than Hussars but they can wipe out Dragoons and Hussars that approach my cannons.
or
Royal Guards: Strong, I put them behind my cannons or make them wipe out an infantry battalion.
