STRATEGY AND TACTICS:
Use the terrain to your advantage: Keep vulnerable units behind ridges or hide them in the trees. Protect vital mountain passes and river crossings.
Use your artillery for long-range fire support or risk placing them near the enemy to use murderous canister shot. Pixel Soldiers Bull Run now has rifled and smoothbore cannon.
Place your cavalry on the flanks or keep them in reserve for a devastating counter-attack.
Use your various Infantry units well. Skirmishers are good at delaying and disrupting enemy attacks or guarding the flanks. Use riflemen to give accurate fire support, whereas those armed with smoothbore muskets are best suited for close range gritty fighting.
Will you push your troops forward and seize the initiative? Or will you set up a defensive line, await reinforcements and let the enemy come to you?
These and many more questions you will need to ask yourself. There are many ways to win the game.
