Again one of those questions of mine...

...how do you represent dismounted Moloitsy?
Mounted have a mixture of spears and muskets (alas, they can't use them on horseback) - but which miniature/weapons do you use for dismounted ones?
One base can only hold one certain type of weapon... should I take spears or muskets?

Or do you dismount them at all or do you use them as cavallery all the time, as they are the only ones Cossacks have?

Mounted Cossack Sotnias carry spears and poor quality firearms. Why are you limited to one weapon per base dismounted? Mix 'em up! If you are sticking to Wargamer figures, use Moloitsy Sotnia infantry.

First of all: Thanks for the answer.

But - excuse my english - I asked the question with the wrong words.
I wanted to know if I should use dismounted Moloisty with guns or with Spears - as I 'm not allowed to mix type of weapons on the base.
(See Rulebook Page 14 "Infantery") I guess it will make more sense if I represent them with guns.

Otherwise the same rule appears on the Cavalry Bases, but here Wargamer mixes the spears and muskets on the Mounted Moloitsy Boxart as well.

Odd but necessary. I would go with firearms when dismounted. Why bother getting off your horse if you aren't going to shoot someone. :D

Just to make my mind clear: Mounted Moloitsy are able to shoot from horseback, but they can't use the rifled gun-rule on horseback.
Guess I need some more time with the rulebook. .;) - Or I read it too often and played too less.

Am i correct to assume as these are Mounted "Registered" Moloitsy thatthey dismount as Registered Moloitsy (those with rifled muskets)and not as regular Moloitsy (those with Spears AND Firearms)?

That is correct.

Dismounted use Poor quality firearms, can use Riffled Barrels and cannot use spears.

Then I trust the unit profile will be amended as it shows "Spear (dismounted)"?

I have based my Dismounted Cossacks as a mixture of muskets and spear.

Dismounted Cossacks can and do use their spear when on foot but there are no special rules attached to them because they must fight in Open Order when dismounted.
