Legion Brittanique

The LB are classed as Formed Light Infantry , I am a little puzzled . Are they acting as an erzatz ordinary Line Regiment (with +1 on MV )or can they skirmish as well , the basing suggests not.

What do Formed Light Infantry do?
Why are the LB classed as Formed Light Infantry and not as skirmishers.

Because the Legion were used alot in the kleiner krieg aspect of the campaigns as well as on the battlefield proper we wanted to reflect there activity as opposed to standard line battalions. They are with the +1" a bit more aggressive as a formed brigade. Hence the liberal use of the phrase formed light. No they cannot Skirmish. You can either buy LB skirmishing or a brigade of formed LB battalions.
