Armor as a melee modifier

Postby CharlesXII » Tue Aug 20, 2013 6:42 am

My group recently played a Koenig Krieg game in which the issue of a melee modifier for above average armor was raised. Polish Hussaria and Pancerni both still wore considerable body armor as did Austrian Cuirassiers (front and back plate and helmet) during the early part of the 18th century. Not sure about the orient but that is not an area we play. They felt that a -1 penalty should be inflicted on melee when encountering such a well armored foe. The designation of an (A) in parenthesis after the unit title on army lists would identify which units could qualify for it. It is an interesting bit of chrome and I thought you might want to consider it for La Guerre Du Roi. Have you given it any thought and what was your conclusions?

Excellent work!

Yes a -1 melee modifier is quite a simple and effective way of representing armoured horse, love your work! :D

Anotehr way of recording the differences is on a tie the armoured horse always win. So a Swedish horse regiment is fighting a Polish Hussar regiment which is armoured and the final melee result is equal, the Polish will win the combat. Thoughts anyone :)
