In the new list of Prince Boriatinski's Pomiestna Cavalry Regiment (1654-1676), it is possible to get two unit of 2-4 bases of Skirmish Sotnia. I am wondering if you can group these into a single squadron if you take both units at maximum size of 4 bases each? The notes for this list say "they may form squadrons as usual", but normal squadrons can only be maximum of 6 bases. Point 4. in the rulebook entry for the table of Boyar Sons Sotnia's (which includes Skirmish Sotnias) says that "Boyar Sons can create Squadrons of up to 8 bases". However, the question is if this rule applies to all three units listed in the table of Boyar Sons Sotnia's (Boyar Sons, Boyar Sons with Spears & Skirmish Sotnia) or only to the first two units which are specifically called Boyars Sons?

Haha, now lets not get cocky. They are still some of the most shitty basic cavalry in the game! X|

The lack of Poor Tactical Discipline in the Boriatinsky list is certainly a good improvement, but is that list really competitive without infantry?

Really good question! Interested to see some opinions as well.

Hrothgar, what are your thoughts on list composition?

The problem is not with the list itself (Boriatinski's force looks pretty powerful), but with army selection. The blind choose-and-reveal process makes it really risky to choose this list if there is a chance you will be up against even an opponent with just a little infantry. If they get lucky and manage to then roll a scenario that includes buildings or built-up areas, you are at an immediate disadvantage.

This risk can be mitigated significantly by including even a very small number of dragoons or infantry (say, a sotnia of 3-4 Servant Cossacks), but the absence of any infantry at all makes this list unsuitable for competitive play, unfortunately.

I'd much rather choose the new version of the standard Muscovite Skirmish 1648-1676, which was never a bad list and has now received a major boost.
