The only cavalry units I am fond with are Chevauxlegers and Hackapells, I am an infantry lover so I manage everything with infantry and sometimes good, but expensive cavalry for a high speed chase and destruction.

Unless of course I have some heavy infantry of my own, plus some falconets (or the use of swiss pikes or similar strong hand inf)

Who says I'm not going to have artillery of my own? Topmodel Or I can do guerrilla warfare with my Partyzants. Then by the time you meet my Pancerni and Winged Hussars there will be nothing left. lol

ON TOPIC:
I recently played a Swedish game. I tend to narrate my action in my head (like it's a war documentary Razz ) or think up dialogue between "people" (e.g., "officers" and discussion between myself and my Explorer). I know, I'm a weirdo.

This time, I had highly organized armies. I had four main groups in my 50-man army: a body of Infantry (Musketeers, Fusiliers) numbering 40, 5 Leather Cannon, 4 Priests, and 1 Chevauxleger. The Chevauxleger was my "field commander", and he was just there to look pretty.

The attack went well: I would engage the enemy, retreat and finish off the remainder, and heal. A father to my men, I made sure not to suffer many casualties. My mix of Musketeers and Fusiliers took out their infantry and cavalry easily.

Then.... it happened....

I sent my Field Commander to have a noble duel to the death with the enemy Commander (a Black Rider)....

And the SOB's private guard attacked and slaughtered him! Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad He was such a good Officer....
