Don't many ACW rules give confederates unwarranted bonuses +1 for charging comes to mind.
So they don't qualify as a "face"

In professional wrestling, the wrestlers are usually, but not always, divided into "heels" and "faces". Think pre-NWO Hulk Hogan, and NWO Hulk Hogan.

A face (short for "babyface") is the heroic underdog. He plays by the rules. He often gets shafted by the Referee. Or the Ref is distracted by the Heel's manager while the heel hits the face with a steel chair. He gets no Special Rules to help him win.

In Napoleonics, the British get the leftover +1 for being Highlanders, Rifles, etc. so they cannot be faces. Just minor heels. grin So, in Napoleonics, I would give the Austrians "face" status. Prussians are creepily Teutonic, and Russians are just plain despotic.

In Flames of War, I would have given the British and Americans "face" status, because the Germans can usually push them around due to the Ref favoring them with special rules. However, the recent BAR kerfluffel gave the Brits some heel cred, and I fear the Tank Destroyer Company will do the same for the Yanks.
