You seem to be right, Andy. I've never looked at the points system before because I don't use them, but a quick glance shows the first example as being 36 points for the unit when it is actually 37. I suggest that the points system is right, just the example of a small unit has been miscalculated (badly). It would appear that whoever added it all up for the tiny unit counted each stamina as one point rather four.
Good spot, but I would ignore it and just go with the suggested points system. As I said, the main example is only one point out for a standard unit.
By strange coincidence I have just been looking at the points system today with a view to starting to construct some Napoleonic forces.
I have to confess I was puzzled by the Infantry example on page 179. By my reckoning the cost should be:- Hand to Hand - 6 x 1 = 6 points Shooting - 2 per pip (18" smoothbore musket) = 2 x 3 = 6 points Morale - 4 x 4 = 16 points Stamina - 4 x 3 = 12 points Total cost = 40 points.
The Tiny unit works out at: Hand to Hand - 1 x 1 = 1 point Shooting - 1 x 2 = 2 points Morale - 4 x 4 =12 points Stamina - 1 x 3 = 3 points Total Cost = 18 points
The Small unit is: Hand to Hand - 4 x 1 = 4 points Shooting - 2 x 2 = 4 points Morale - 4 x 4 = 12 points Stamina - 2 x 3 = 6 points Total Cost = 26 points
Strangely, the cavalry unit is correct at 44 points.
The artillery unit is: Hand to Hand - 1 x 1 = 1 point Shooting - up to 48" = 16 points Morale - 4 x 2 = 8 points Stamina - 2 x 2 =4 points Total Cost = 29 points
Are the figures in Black Powder simpy typos - or am I missing something in the calculations?
