As with all Simon's figures they are pretty. Not a criticism, but how many horses could one person actually hold on to like that? Six seems rather a lot, would that be possible?

Yes your right, even in good quite circumstances 2 or 3 at most and you would tie them together so that they are pulling against each other.
When I move the horse here just a bit of rubbish blowing about will spook them.

Yep, our thoroughbred took a strong arm to hold onto when he didn't want to go where you wanted him to. But they are lovely vignettes all the same.

Interesting that these rules are being lauded as the best thing since sliced bread with innovative use of squares. Can't think where I've seen squares used in an ECW game before.....

They do play quite differently to Regiment of Foote 2.

I went for 3 horses per horseholder, because that's how pack #6 rolls. Also decided that rather than just having a representation of horses and horseholders, I should have the correct number of horses for the whole unit.

Modern day horses are rubbish - they get spooked by carrier bags, bicycles etc. Olden days horses were roughtie toughtie and went into battle, with guns and cannons and whooping war cries.
