3 2/23/2021 3:44:00 AM 1620-1621 Catholic Message OK ready to roll
Looking through the TYW files on BGG. I think the following optional rules should be adopted.
Grateful for your views.
19.2a Stronger Imperial Setup
Add the 4th Imperial VET unit to Wien in the at-start
setup of the Campaign and Early War scenarios.
19.3 LoC Established During Action Phase
EACH player establishes his PAY/LOOT status at the
end of their 6th round. The armies are still paid
during the normal Pay/Loot phase but their ‘supply
status’ vis-à-vis their supply centers is established
and marked (LoC est. or NO LoC) at the end of their
respective 6th round.
Design Note: This abrogates the systemic Catholic
advantage of moving last & cutting Protestant LoC’s
w/o the Protestant player being able to respond.
19.7 Tilly as Dynamic Leader
Tilly operates as a TWO star dynamic leader. Until
Wallenstein is brought into play Tilly is allowed to
lead Bavarian and Imperial units as a stack, as long as
there is an Imperial sub-commander in the stack.
Once Wallenstein is on the map, the Catholic player
has until the end of the current turn to separate any
Bavarian and Imperial forces stacked together. Failing
this, the Imperial combat units are removed from
play (and are available for recruiting). In addition, if
Wallenstein is not brought into play by the beginning
of Turn 6, the Catholic player loses 3 VPs.
NOTE: Under this optional rule Imperial units/Leaders
are limited to the Kingdom of Bohemia [Bohemia,
Moravia, Silesia], the Palatinate [Upper and Lower],
Austria, Bavaria, Tyrol and Hungary until the arrival of
Wallenstein. They cannot move or attack outside of
these areas.**
