Other questions:
Page 71 under "Slopes":
"This type of terrain grants an Advantage to Units
standing higher up a slope – no matter whether they
are defending or attacking."
Does this mean if the Unit has a Defence or Charge Order and fights a unit further downhill it gets the Advantage bonuses? Or is the Order meaningless?

Page 73 under "Forest":
Forests grant an
Advantage to infantry in attack and defense while
fighting anything but other infantry. If infantry
doesn’t have Defense Order its enemy must be in the
forest to count this bonus. If infantry has a Defense
Order it is irrelevant where attacker is."
Does this mean if I have Infantry in Open Ground fighting with Cavalry in a Forest the Infantry gains an Advantage? I assume the rules are talking about both units being in the Forest? Also see above about necessary or unnecessary Orders. This concerns all rules where it talks about bonuses "in attack or defence". If no special Orders are nedded I would just change this to "fights"

Also Roads are pretty useless? They can only be put on Terrain where Marching is allowed anyway.

Page 48 and 73 I now have covered :)

Yup. I noticed it yesterday. Should be:
Open Ground, Road: Can March
Steep slopes/Cliffs: VDT + Skill test

There is also the Tak (i.e. Yes) in the 'Forces O.O.' column. ]:(

Page 72 Slopes
Slopes make it possible to shoot over Units. To do so between shooting Unit and a Unit which above goes the Line of Fire and the Unit which is the target have to be at least 10cm.
Should be something like this:
Slopes make it possible to shoot over Units. To do so there must be at least 10cm distance between the shooting Unit and the unit being shot over, and again at least 10cm distance between the unit being shot over and the Unit which is the target.

Example 1 on page six: 'Single file' usually means 'in a column'. So for the example to work they should be in a line. I.e. three bases lined up next to each other.

Under "Countermarch" it is stated that the unit doesn't gets a -1 Skill modifier when shooting because it doesn't count as Moving. But I was under the impression that with a Defence Order you never get the -1 Skill modifier for shooting in the Fire after Movement Stage? What about Caracole? What about Special-Maneuvers?

1. Yes, an Order in this case is irrevelant.
2. At first, it seems so, but... There's no prohibition to put a road on other terrain in casual game. Rules about placing terrains concerns - first of all - tournaments. And the second thing is, that is a possibility of publishing in a future some scenarios with - for example - road going through a forest. I hope it's clear now.

Excellent!
Guys, great request - if any of you has more comments (not just several single ones), please use option of adding comments in your PDF reader (like in Adobe Reader for example), than save & send me (witold-at-wargamer.pl). It makes the work much easier 8-)
Thank you!

Suggestion for reference sheet change:

Under Close Combat, Combat dice roll modifiers:

Where it states "All modifiers which change Skill value - replace this statement and list all the modifiers (impetus bonus, plus any others)

@Jerry, there's no point for listing all Skill modifiers, because it's too much of them (I suppose - dozens), and they are dependent sometimes from scenarios, specific Units' special rules etc. etc. Giving just examples of most important would be more likely.
