Reading rules as written the costing of cavalry with FS greater 10 seems extraordinarily expensive. If I understand it correctly a 12 FS Cuirassier unit would be calculated as follows. 12 + 150% of 12 = 30. Then add 150% of 30(?) = 45 so the overall cost is 45 30 = 75. Is this the intention? Or do the writers mean the following? Add 150% for being a 12FS then add a further 150% for being Cuirassiers given a final cost which is 150% + 150% + the basic 100% giving a total of 400% of FS = 48. The latter seems more reasonable.
Infantry ( page 91 ) and Cavalry (page 92 ) are separated.
I can see how the first paragraph under Cavalry units on page 92 can be miss leading, its not in addition to the infantry costs, its in place of. In the errata this will become "To find the cost of a Cavalry unit, we follow the same procedure as with elite infantry, but with the percentage costs shown below"
For Cuirassier the increase is just 150% once as the example given on page 92,
FS8 +150% = 12 so 12+8 = 20, taking your numbers the unit would be FS12 +150% = 18 so 18+12 = 30
Hi Andy, Exactly that, we wanted to discourage armies with lots of really high Fatigue Infantry where as some high fatigue cavalry can be negated by infantry squares and use of buildings so are not as irksome, hope this helps ady
