Just finished Puebla scenario with AnthonyN. and two question came up.
One question could make or break a French Imperialist win.

Are breastworks allowed?
Because there is no terrain effects mention for them on the charts.
And there is no mention of it in the scenario rules, section 15, (engineering)

Again, With artillary in a trench and set back two hex firing down 3 elevations at a target 4 and plus hexes.
Is there a line of sight, I say no, due to the trench the artillary occupies.
Less then 4 hexes it would be block anyway, due to angel.
tks thomas

anybody

Re: Puebla
Been some time since I looked at/did these rules . . . if there are rules for breastworks, and counters therefor, I would say they would be allowed. Building such was SOP in those days . . .

Re: Puebla
Thank you,
However, there in no mention in the Puebla scenario rules or in Puebla scenario chart? I Say No
In those days SOP,(standard operating procedure), was to fight in linear formations. Advancing toward your enemy.
In Napoleonic style tactics.
Yes?
Breastworks did not become popular until the ACW when the weapons became more accurate and deadly.
