GDD Army generator Questions
Andros

Hi, I just read the GDD rules and I was trying to build some armies with the army generator, and I have some question about it (I hope I put the thread in the right section):

1. In some armies, like Austrian 1805, some of the infantry battalion and SK results can be something like Jaeger SK1 (austria 1805) or Light SK2 (Britain 1812) and similars without training specification; How do I know if they are trained/raw/veteran? does being jaeger changes something in game terms or it's just an hint on which miniatures use for that battalion?

2.In some armies, for the Sappers it's written: (D6 after first infantry division completed), in other just : (D6). Does it changes something? or t's always one dice roll per army?

3.In the Britain 1812 army list it says that one brigade it's of portuguese troops, so it means that for the british one I have to roll a d10 for experience and SK rating, whle for the portuguese one it's always 4 line battalions SK1 and one of caƧadores SK2, right? but that means that the portuguese brigade will have different kind of skirmish level while usually all units of the same battalion should have same SK and training level, is that right? Or I have misinterpreted the process and I should roll for every single battalion for every army?

I hope I explained my doubts properly, since english it's not my native language and I may have wrote something wrong.

Thank you very much in advance

 

Cheers!

Hi Andros

To try and answer your  questions

1. Treat the 1805 Jaegers as trained.  The 1812 British army was far better trained. Treat their Light Infantry as Veteran. 

 2. Sappers it is one dice role per army. 

3. The Portuguese Line Battalions were very different in size of battalion and training . The  Cacadores were the same as the 95th rifles with a higher training standard.  Consequently. for the rules the portuguese should always have a slighty less SK level then the British. You should also role dice for every singe British Line battalion. The exceptions are of cours the Light Infantry and the Light Division.

Ok, thank you very much!

So basically I can give them a historically accurate profile, when not specified, that's cool.

So a jaeger trained SK1, in pure game terms, would be the same as a line infantry trained SK1, there are no differences, right?

And just to be sure, if a brigade has, let's say, 4 battalions, I have to throw only a d10 for the whole brigade training, not one for every battalion (unless otherwise specified) true?

Thank you very much again

Hi andrea

Yes a jaeger SK1 in pure game turns is the same as line.

Regarding Bdes. If the Bde is Portuguese then the line is SK 1 Cacadores SK2. If the Brigade is British Light Division Bdes then follow the GdD generator  rules for the  Light Division. Other British Bdes throw for each battalion, except when it is a light battalion than it is SK2 .
