Welcome to the Forum.
- What would be a good list of scenarios for a beginner, apparts from 'carolins'
IMHO: The Tories and Indians scenario is quite fun, the French and Indian War is also simpler to handle (less units, no population support rule).
- I think I saw something about 'frontage' (the number of units that can combat simultaneously) in a thread but can't find it anymore. There was a file providing these frontage values for the different terrains
I don't think such a file exists, because it would be misleading as many rules have an influence on it. EG: irregulars and arties have a separate frontage.
The only figure I know are for regular troops:
Wilderness: 2 (8 for irregulars?)
Plains: 8 (not sure about this one)
This should give you the rough idea.
- when there are several units in a region, and no leader, they fare better without being stacked (lesser malus) but staying separate, right ?
In nominal yes, however they might be delayed if commited in a battle and a superior force could be defeated separately by its more concentrated opponent this way.
