Re: >> Sorauren scenario of Welly Victories

M, 1) Steep slopes = Also see the GdA FAQs. Attacking Uphill Disadvantage.

Re: >>Reinforcing Melees & Forward Task

Also remember that the sequence will be: First - Charges - so only units charging move up and attack. Then - Movement.

Re: Massed columns

Just think of this as are your battalions massed or not?

3 columns are side by side and within 5cms - so all are massed.

And so on.

Re: >> Shrapnel ammunition

Or one could simply add a 1 CD at the ranges Chris has suggested for Shrapnel. But if you roll a 1 then your out of ammo!

Re: Flank or not Flank

B,

The main point to bear in mind in this situation is that if a charge starts from 15cms or less - then the defender cannot react at all. (see 5b. p44.)

W,

Yes he can be hurt in the Charge phase - see Chapter 10. (p93)

Roll on the Destiny table if an attached general has lost a charge combat with either a Retire or Retreat result.
