Reggimento di Fanteria Confederata

The effect of fanteria, cavalleria, ed artiglieria fire is calculated without dice. The player simply refers to the fanteria fire chart which list percentage caduti at a given range. Fanteria firing Remington rifles at 100 m range, inflict 40 percent caduti per turn. Cover ed open order formations reduce the fire effect. For every 25 caduti suffered by fire o melee, one model soldier is removed from the unit. The photo shows Airfix Union e Fanteria Confederata con kepis e slouch hats, painted to represent a Confederate reggimento fanteria in wargames. The portabandiera is a converted fante con the rifle removed e replaced by a flag staff made from pianowire.
