Reading the FOGN Faq today said we had it wrong on the weekend, Cavalry attachments for units defending buildings have no effect on fire into buildings.

Also

"Infantry entering a building to occupy it MUST be placed in Tactical formation, even if the unit can normally only operate in Skirmish formation when outside a building."

Means Infantry skirmishers (that normally are in skirmishers) can defend buildings.

I am gob smacked that someone actually thought that a cavalry detachment could have any effect from a building! Did they envision horse sized doggy doors....?

cheers

Well I wasn't there but I doubt very much anyone would suggest cav charging from inside buildings.

But I doubt the rules suggest cav in a building are actually inside the buildings. A building I assume represents a built up area, with open areas as well as actual buildings. Small scale cav charges are well recorded in fighting in and around built up areas (at the scale represented by an attachment anyway).

Yeah that was the theory .
The model represents a village , the cav detachment drives in the skirmisher companies of attacking infantry .

Really? I cannot say that I am familiar with any such sources. The whole idea of the FoGN cavalry detachment rule is that it drives in the enemy skirmishers but if your cavalry detachment charges out of the village whilst the main body remains in its static defensive position, then they are likely to be defeated in detail.

But thankfully at least the rules seem to have cleared this up the right way, because I do not see much more force in the argument that a cavalry detachment might have any significant effect from a village either (just more horse sized doggy doors required).

PS I was not there either.
