Twilight of the Sun-King
Army Lists and Points System for Twilight of the Sun-King
Posted 21 Feb 2001
Some suggestions for army lists for my Twilight of the Sun-King rules.
Quality of troops
Units which are superior for any reason add 1 to morale rolls and to the score on the die roll when attempting an action. Inferior units deduct 1 from these rolls. All other units are ordinary.
Troop proportions in armies
Up to 10% Artillery.
Up to 20% Horse (excluding Dragoons).
Up to 35% Horse (including Dragoons).
Troop quality is restricted by nationality, but is otherwise at your discretion.
Nationalities of armies
Armies can be Anglo-Dutch, French, Portuguese, Spanish, Franco-Spanish or Anglo-Portuguese.
Anglo-Dutch and French armies are limited to 8 units in size; other armies can be any size.
In Franco-Spanish and Anglo-Portuguese armies of > 8 units, then the Spanish and Portuguese must out number the rest of army, ignoring Artillery.
Superior: All elite troops and troops using innovative tactics (Foot using platoon firing; Horse using shock action) and/or technology (battalion guns). Includes Guards of any nation, and all Anglo-Dutch Foot and Horse (except Dragoons).
Inferior: Levies of any nation. Includes all native Spanish and Portuguese except Guards.
Ordinary: Veterans. All other units.
