At Leipzig, our small Prussian batallion faced a much larger line of Poles and Young Guard infantry. They came at us, we marched towards them, and then about 20 meters the lines stopped and both sides jeered at eachother. This continued for like a minute, when suddenly someone shouted 'Zuruck!'. We broke. And ran. The batallion was shattered, and we had to regroup a good distance behind, around the flag.

Much more awesome and accurate than dying. There's truly nothing like running like hell.

In every one I've watched/participated we just break and reform from a distance.

This is a small rant of mine, but I barely saw anyone dropping dead at Waterloo this year. Seriously, in my unit for example, only myself and two others dropped. Some even refused to do so when told to.

I'm not a reenactor but from the footage i saw of waterloo this year, I can understand why no one would want to lay down and miss a second of it

Sadly, this is so true. And I am guilty of it as well, as a a result of that I popped nearly 50 shots during each battle. Normally we only get 15-20.

Please, you can have plenty of fun. I died 3 times during Waterloo...
Just make sure that your group picks you up again, when advancing.

Good Groups and especially good officers will make sure that you will not continue being dead for the rest of the battle.

Problems we had was that the smoke and noise made it very difficult to tell how close cavalry was, so was largely too dangerous to lay down in that wheat unless there were no horses anywhere nearby

Yeah, there's also the issue with in the Dutch Brigade with Sjak Draak as your commander who's obsessed with moving every 5 minutes.

Guilty as charged! I noticed that barely anyone "Died". I say that in inverted commas because, well... people did die :/
