|Summary of Changes from original rules
Kiels must be maintained, except when unformed due to melee.
It may charge while still unformed. Otherwise it must reform to maintain at least 2 files of 4 deep in the next available movement phase.
Kiel may only put the heavy weapon ranks out if the kiel is maintained.
Divisions - any troops within a base width of a unit within the division stops that unit joining with the exceptions noted in rules, slight wording change that is more a clarification.
Interpenetration - Any troops may pass through uncontrolled artillery, perpendicularly, front to back or back to front.
So when cavalry overrun guns, the may pass through them, until an infantry unit comes up close enough to reman the guns. You still cannot interpenetrate your own manned artillery!!
Light foot may make turns, contractions and expansions before and after interpenetrating other troops.
Commanded shot cannot charge. Swedes would still count as salvo if other infantry them!!!
Light artillery mounted on battlewagons cannot move and shoot, just like all other artillery.
Battlewagons shoot with a minus, except against bombs, artillery and regimental guns!!
Swedish brigades no longer get the heavy armour at long range benefit.
Protection - foot defending field fortifications or entirely in rough or difficult terrain count protected at all times
Battlewagons don't count threatened flank by mounted within 12" similar to kiels, tercios, troops behind fortifications.
So the only new item appears to be the cavalry going through uncontrolled artillery!!
There is some more list errata as well.
Minor adjustments to correct editing errors.
The only new ones appear to corrections to the Hapsburg Austrian Imperial list, you can now have 3 full regiments of foot in the post 1989 list in east.
The mix for the relief of Vienna force is changed to allow up to 1/2 non general points to be Poles
clarifications to some of the other lists as well
Addition of a Morrocan ally list for Aviz Portuguese.
