Good point, we can make it cumulative. Your leader helps by getting closer but he is at greater risk.

Sylvain,
This looks pretty good. That said, I think the CinC and retinue leader should be cumulative rather either or.

Bob and other Lion Rampant Fans,

I am making progress on my Moors and Spanish for a big battle game. 
I have twisted the rules for a Big Battle adding strategic moves. I added some suggestions from Dave such as an evade means activation for next turn. I have added the Counter Charge as an Activation, I also combine the QRS and the rules in a single sheet and added the colored markers (I have a good set of colored chip)

I am attaching it so we can discuss later.

Bob
Thanks for the Edit. I updated the Sheet.
The CinC is something I came up yesterday, The intent is to model multiple players. It is free unit but an half strength of 3 Mounted Men at Arms. It cannot do anything but move or defend in Melee. 
I have prepared miniatures that will be based 3 on a 2 inches round base together to represent the leader (my Retinue Leaders are 2 on a base)
As a club we can decide how to represent the leader. We can have the loss of the leader meaning the loss of the battle (a medieval leader loss is pretty bad) or just the loss of the Activation chips
I took your idea of one failure per player plus distributed chips. This time, I added that chips should be distributed at the beginning of the turn. 
I have also updated the sequence that all wild charges have to occur before any players starts activating (Michael M. will love this rule so this time I cannot burn all the chips before he finishes his first charge)
The Strategic move beyond 24" is my add too. It will speed up the game for reinforcement and early turns.
I extended the +1 to Retinue Leader or CinC which means, not cumulative

As always, as a club we can decide how we tweak the rules
When it is stable, I would not mind sending a copy to the authors

This is why I always attempt to target the record player/band first!

Who says Soviets didn't have I sense of humor?  Oh, that's right...everyone.

There is an excellent representation regarding the importance of a proper marching cadence.
There is also a very good simulation of the effectiveness of a 37mm AT gun vs infantry.
Although the gunners seem a bit young.

The uniforms (especially the officers) are pretty good too.

I admit I don’t recognize the flags.
Maybe one of you period experts can tell us about them.

Re: Awesome battle re-creation in a movie

Any Jenkin’s Ear figures should do. 
You may have to do some minor modifications to the helmets. 

Larry seems to have a good handle on the flags. 

If you want the motorcycle and sidecar you’ll probably have to use a BMW and glue a small freezer box onto it’s side. I haven’t seen any commercially available models that look like the one in the film. 

I’m not sure where you can get the Victrola. 
You’ll probably have to scratch build one.

Re: Awesome battle re-creation in a movie

Kochese (Larry)
 

Love the horns? handles? on the El Supremos helmet. But I did recognize both the flags and the uniforms. The uniform is the camouflage field uniform of the first and second regiments of the Lower Slobovian Legion, each of three battalions. The colors are the battalion colors of each of the battalions and the two regimental colors. They bring duplicates of all the flags in the field just in case they loose one. GEEZE, and you call yourselves historical gamers.I'm dissapointed in you guys, but especially Ray,

No worries, Larry.  I was going to be stretched for time as well.  Have to get back for a Coyotes game that evening.

Another time though.  Have to see the sand table.
