I played this yesterday with a friend and we enjoyed it. But are the US Inf too powerful with their +1 die (standing) and roll to hit an officer? The +1 roll puts them on a par with British INF - is this historical?
It is admittedly hard to get the Americans just right. They were inconsistent at times. (Looking forward to seeing how Mr. Borg will handle it someday) The British took heavy casualties and learned that they had to take the colonists more seriously as an opponent.
The shooting from the Americans is on par with the British but the skill in battle drills and formations is reflected by less skill from the Americans at a move and shoot.
As for killing officers, well the Americans intentionally targeted officers and were usually quite effective at it. The British took an unusually high toll in officers at Bunker Hill.
