Actually it works well. Cavalry into the front of steady formed infantry is suicide as with normal period. We have, as you can see for more post, 12 inch frontage. We count effective infantry shooting range at 8 inches and long range to 12 inches. We also allow cavalry to shoot 6 inches. Artillery ranges are 12 inches for canister, 24 inches for case shot, and then anywhere on the board as long range with ball. Because our frontage is so wide, it makes the scale of the game smaller and I think this is why it worked for us. So what you see is a meeting engagement with two brigades per side. One brigade had one regiment in skirmish formation, light infantry, three formed infantry Regiment and an artillery battery. The other brigade had three formed regiments of infantry, one artillery battery, and an independent cavalry Regiment. The two armies mirrored each other in composition but not deployment. We did allow units that receive four or more hits on the charge to complete the charge and fight the combat. I really think this work best, but everyone has an opinion LOL.
