Hello all! The subject of the one-stand units (mostly Union) came up recently regarding the fact that technically they could all be put into Columns with no detriment, yet still benefit from the faster move speed. Obviously, Columns normally suffer from lower firepower due to the fact that they only have the one front stand that can fire. However, one-stand units suffer no such decrease in fire ability. This was left alone mostly for ease-of-play and the assumption that units this small will have far greater flexibility of movement and maneuver and thus could probably move quicker without suffering much detriment.

However, after thinking about it, for those of you who do wish to apply a penalty for one-stand units in Column formation, simply apply an additional "-1 Fire Die" adjustment to their normal Fire Combat. In most cases, this will make little difference (as many of these tiny units only issue the Minimum-One-Die fire anyway) but in some cases it could hurt these units.

If this new modifier plays well, I'll probably add it permanently to the game in the next expansion.

Thanks all and enjoy! Hermann
