Well, if it turns into a melee (ouch), it's no real test of shock
ability.  It's expected the troopers will engage, though.  To allow the
breaking of ranks but keep us focused on the breaking _through_ of
ranks, let's have an agreement that the troopers defend a Wizard map,
and the lancers are heading south.  Wizard map is wide enough that the
troopers will need to be two ranks deep; three ranks would leave holes,
but blocks might be a valid tactic.  If the troopers get through, we'll
try a Melee map.  I mean, let's face it, there's no way you couldn't
hold a small enough gap.  :)
