To keep the number of threads to a minimum, I thought I'd go ahead and start an ACW unit suggestion thread.
Go ahead and post your ideas for ACW units.
I'll go first:
Texas Brigade - perhaps high charge/melee stats
Louisiana Tigers - high defense/melee stats
Virginia Infanry - high morale/fire stats
Tennessee/North and South Carolina/Alabam Infantry?
Confederate Cavalry - high charge/morale stats
Conf artillery - perhaps long ranged (rifled) and short ranged (napoleon) guns
Iron Brigade - high defense/melee stats
Irish Brigade - high charge/melee stats
Zuoves - high morale/fire stats
Pennysylania/New York/Maine Infantry?
Union cavalry - good defense/high rate of fire (if dismounting/firing cav is implemented)
Union artillery - perhaps long ranged (rifled) and short ranged (napoleon) guns
Note: Union arty should be less expensive than confederate arty to show the industrial advantage the Union had over the confederacy (perhaps better stats than conf arty?). Confederate cav should also be less expensive than union cav, to show the advantage in cav/horseman the south had over the north (perhaps better stats also?).
Anyway, just my suggestions. I'm interested in hearing yours (especially ash's). ;D

Good ideas Bux!
Just an FYI, units will be divided into two different groups per faction: Generic state infantry (New York Infantry, Texas Infantry, etc etc) which will be like basic line, but with SLIGHTLY varied stats, and then Specific Units (Irish Brigade, Iron Brigade) which will function more like Guard type units.
Keep the suggestions coming! The AWI mod will be finalized in a week at most, and so SERIOUS work will begin on the ACW mod soon!
