P&S army list questions

Post by poi » Tue May 15, 2012 4:08 pm

Working out how my toys fit the P&S Royalist list. So far I've worked this out using the Warlord Battalia box:
Prince Rupert
4 cavalry units
2 pike units
4 musketter units
1 commanded shotte or storming party
Artillery
1 mortar
~500 points

Is a storming party a block/warband unit or a battle line unit?

How do the rules define a battalia, for working out how many cannon I can take?

Oddly the storming party entry does not list whether it's a line, warband or block, just that it's a foot unit. Not seen an errata for that. though the image at the front of the book showing an army has the storming party as skirmished. So deploy either as skirmished or a line I'd assume would be the best way to handle that. With or without Petard really. Frankly, having read about those things, I'd rather be in skirmish order just to make it easier to run the hell away from it!

One artillery piece ( of any size, but not including the singular mortar per army) per batallia, and a batallia is just however many units you have under a specific commander, no maximum limit but at it's most basic, one unit of pike with two sleeves of shot plus a commander.

I've asked on the Warlord forum what the Storming Party is, and artillery piece for clarification.

Foot Battle Line for the Storming party. And no answer about the cannon but it has to be one.

That's all good then, I'll amend my copy.
