Interesting idea, but that isn't how squares work. Double melee? How?

Rather;
Horse cannot charge a square
Shoot value is halved
Units in square take double damage from all hits

Squares only work against lots of poorly armed militia units or horse, and are almost completely useless in any kind of fire fight.

New ideas about Square

Unit in square have half their melee and shoot points but have +1 or +2 melee bonus against cavalry units. With these addition Napoleon tactics can be playable: move cavalry to outflank infantry, they form square, and they are destroyed by artillery.


PC: I konw that squares will be easely destroyed by LI and Contraptions. They are good only if you want to play pre Ironclads era battle and add more formations.

The matter is I am trying to invent a square is: I like LI infantry/cavalry mechanics very mush! I think its great very simple, but alows your units to behave very close to real battle. There are even column movement: attack, line formation, supply, HQ, forts and more! So I want to play Horse and Mushet Era battles with LI rules. But LI rules does not have square.

By the way I like the chapter in LI book which tells you what to do when unit is hitted but not death.

With these you can represent:
1. battle between regular troops and militia with low command points. If regulars hited militia it retreats, but then commander cry HOLD THE LINE! Militia forming up and continued attack (Like in final battle in Patriot, when after retreating and ambushing 1st battalion of Brits, americans attacks second battalion, but broken)
like here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZBtVBh9Ok0 on 5:38

2. The second thing which you can represent with "drop dice lower than com points" is Battle of Camden from Patriot.
Have a look: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_7ZgTD60PhA
1:07 British turn - move
1:17 Americans turn - move
1:33 Americans ends their turn
1:34 British turn - move
1:38 Americat turn - fire (2 dices. But only one dice is 6, that meant brits are hit but not death)
1:22 Brits can retreat or drop dice. Dhey choose dice. It shows 3, which is smaller they com points. They loose 1 HP but can make turn
1:26 brits turn - fire. Again 1 hit
1:59 Americas droping morale dice. it shows 6. Batalion in panic and flees

AMAZING!

Now I am agreed that company square is not very good ides, because you can always create a battalion square (4 bases)
