Well the post battle process was unkind to my battered Texans again.
One the Bright side I got another transfer card so I can add another 6 stand unit of Seasoned Veterans. I also got "a valuable experience card" I drew Political Savvy a nice card but not my preference. I used my Bounty card to build the Texas Lancers up to 5 stands and one of my artillery cards to bring the 3rd Arkansas back up to 5 stands. I also got a new Light Rifle and a Heavy Rifle so I have been able to bring my guns up to strength.
The 17th Alabama joins my army as Seasoned Veterans via the "Transfer Card" with 6 stands and the 18th Georgia joins as Eager Recruits also with 6 stands.
1st Texas has been reduced to 4 stands and is now Seasoned Recruits; 5th Texas has been ground down to 3 stands and is also Seasoned Recruits; The 3rd Arkansas is standing at 5 stands and still Seasoned Vets with Sharpshooters attached. The Louisiana Tigers are a powerful Eager Recruits with 8 stands far and away my largest force. Cavalry has two units each with 5 stands of Eager Recruits for both the Hampton Legion and Texas Lancers. The First Texas Light Artillery has two Howitzers; while the Palmetto Artillery now has two Light Rifles and one Heavy Rifle. Finally the Bath Artillery has one Napoleon.
All and all its a fairly strong force though my Texans are now more of a weak spot than the strength they have been. Not getting to promote any troops to Veteran has been an issue one I really hope will fix it self next game.
