First a general question - is there an errata to CCN - and if so where?

Then the more specific questions...

Why are the British Light Dragoons classed as HC at Rolica but then classed as LC a few days later at Vimiero?

Why does the Impetuous British Cavalry rule only apply to Waterloo? They were no less impetuous in 1808 and charged out of control at Vimiero.

1. Look into the FAQs section, this will be updated always just right in time.

2. About your other questions, only the scenario designer could reply ;)

But you can feel free, and test/play with houserules, if your opponents agree :)

The design philosophy of C&C games often rates units by how they performed in that battle rather than their actual type.

This could be why that are LC in one and HC in another. It also may explain why no impetuos cavalry rule if it did not play a major part in the battle.

On the Impetuous British Cavalry rule at Waterloo my thoughts are

Of the two British cavalry brigades where the guards brigade and the union brigade.

The 3 regiments of the union brigade hadn't seen service in the peninsula. which explains the British Heavy cavalry unit as for the guards unit which had seen action in the peninsula maybe its to do with the fact the Uxbridge the British cavalry commander hadn't seen service since with Sir John Moore in the Courrna campaign and lead the charge instead of forming a reserve to move up in support

Also as Phill said C&C games often rates units by how they performed in that battle and during the British Cavalry charge at Waterloo they had trouble reforming.

Although this wasn't a new problem for British Cavalry but at Waterloo it went badly for them.
