Does the river stop the cavalry or can it move along it for the maximum number of hexes, for example, can the hussars pass 3 hex along the river in a round??

Cavalry treat the Dnieper as fordable river hexes, so would stop at the first time they enter such a hex.

Great scenario. Tried as a 2-player version: 6 hours of gaming, 16-10 to the French. French tried fighting their way up the ravine, but were beaten back, then a frontal assault in the centre led by Guard Artillery finally wore down enough Russian infantry.

Russians need 20 LN and 10 LT units - substitute as needed

Does the RAVINE have combat and movement restrictions?

it is treated as a fordable river, but only infantry can enter a Ravine.

the restriction is otherwise on LOS. Only adjacent units can attack (melee) units in a ravine. The reverse is not true, infantry can fire out.

Units in a ravine don't block LOS, so units could fire through the hex as if it were vacant, with the proviso enemy units cannot ignore an adjacent unit in a ravine to do so.

After 4 playtests I feel the scenario plays reasonable well and close enough to the battle, but needs some adjustments to balance it;

I have 3 main ideas around this;
1. Adjust the ravine to run closer to the town
2. Give the Russian infantry one extra die in close combat attacking a town or castle
3. Give a Time Pressure objective banner to the Russians if they play a Scout card
Time Pressure Objective (new)
When Time Pressure rules are in effect against the attacker, the defending player, after playing a “Scout (Left, Centre or Right)” Command card, may take a Permanent Victory Banner and draw one Command card instead of drawing two Command cards at the end of his turn. Taking a Permanent Victory Banner, instead of drawing two Command cards is not allowed, if doing so would give the player his final Victory Banner to win the battle.

Opinions?
