I would appreciate General de Brigade players imput on a subject that has been niggling me for a while,namely the ability under the rule to band together light Infantry coys into a single body,creating,as it states in the rules,a separate unit.
My own reading of the deployment and use of an Infantry units light coy was specifically a local one ie (a)to prepare the way for and protect its parent unit,not to become a part of a separate entity that cannot return to its parent unit.
I do realise that in certain circumstances whole units have been known to be used in the "skirmish" role but these are the exception to the general rule and mainly used for a specific reason rather than the norm.
The use of actual Light Infantry units is a very different matter of course,General de Brigade rules allow these units to act in a manner that reasonably fulfils their actual role on the battlefield.
My point is really to ask if the skirmish coys under GdeB are carrying out the role of Light Infantry Units and NOT their primary role stated in (a) above ?
I look forward to your constructive comments :)
