All types have their advantages and their disadvantages. Best thing is to try out the different types.

You could use this also to start a division.
Max number of field dragoosn, servant cossacks and reiters each give a basis for a regiment. Just add a few bases and some command, and a 4 regiment division is within grasp. Add some Dvorians to the cavalry and a viable Pomesta regimen is also there.

In the end, it depends on the amount of fun you can get out of it, and how much you'd like to spend. ;)

Cheers,
Zagin

Lol, while a nice fantasy, that is getting a bit ahead of myself. Also the problem is that I don't know when the Field Dragoons will be released, so it is difficult to determine whether or not to stick to the original Skirmish Set and find another solution for mounted figures, or whether to wait for the release.

In the end you want both Field Dragoons and Servant Cossacks anyway :D So for now stick with the models available and use Servant Cossacks :D

Yes, but to be honest I see very little use for Border Dragoons in any future force, so if I buy the Skirmish set and then in the future also a box of Field Dragoons to provide mounts I will still end up with leftover Border Dragoons.

But perhaps I will find a use for some Border Dragoons in the future. Am I right in guessing that they are virtually free in a Division at only 2 FSP?

Yes base of the regiment is just 2FSP. For +1FSP you can get one gun. If you increase the Regiment to 5FSP then for +1FSP you get two guns.

Another question on the issue of Boyar Sons and spears.

I am wondering what comes first when starting a battle. Do you first apply the Miestnichestvo rule or do you first assign spears to specific Boyar sotnia's?

In other words, if I happen to get a free Boyar Elite sotnia, can I take away the spears from another Sotnia and give it to the Elite sotnia?

Another question, in the new Revised Edition rulebook, the size of the free Elite Sotnia is always three, but I seem to recall that in the previous edition (I can't check anymore, because I returned the book I borrowed) the size of the Elite sotnia was equal to the size allowed by the FSP number of the Skirmish Force. Is that correct?

1. You apply spears when creating your roster. So you either need to have your 2 sotnias with spears or you count for your luck with Miestnichestvo. You cannot re-assign spears after receiving free Elite sotnia.
2. Nope, additional free Elite sotnia was 3 bases in original rulebook as well.
