Re: General d'Armee Video

Great stuff guys well done. Some really useful tips and explanations. Will look forward to the promised battle, particularly if DB is going to reprise his Fred Scuttle impression. :lol:
Cheers

Re: A bit of BUA on the side

John OK nearest takes precendent over directly opposing then.....so if it was this https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1903/30527104317_134e3a48bc_b.jpg then the line support for the charge would be not allowed as before, but the BUA would ignore the opposing target and fire at the nearest (charging unit...

Re: A bit of BUA on the side

Thanks John, yes the pic isn't quite up to demonstrating this I agree, would have been more illustrative if the column were a line.
So do you think the sentence should be read as ...'providing they have no other targets...' rather than nearer targets?

Re: A bit of BUA on the side

DB Right at last...! :-) So having established that ; could the garrison fire (defensively) in the charge? or would the rather confusing rule on Pg45 (...may provide support fire...providing they have no nearer targets whatsoever within effective or volley range to their front) mean that it could be...

Re: A bit of BUA on the side

Hi DB
Actually I think I may have found the solution in that this support would not be allowed under the directly opposing enemy rule?
Here is the pic anyway.

A bit of BUA on the side

A column (C) supported by a line on its flank (L1), decides to charge a line (L2) with a garrisoned BUA (G) on a flank directly opposing L1. Both are within charge distance. C aims for center of L2 but L1 overlaps both the L2 and G. The charge is successful. Q. G cannot support L2 so C & L2 should m...

Re: Double Discipline?

Thanks for that John, I had missed the statement on p81. Did some stats stuff on this and charging is a definite risky business. 2 average columns + general, charging average Line with supports and average skirmish screen + general Wins outright 26% , Volleys 30% , Firefights 20%, Retreats 6%, Retir...

Double Discipline?

Hi This came up yesterday and maybe it has come up before, but I could not resolve it. In an infantry charge the defending skirmish line threw a double 6 before retiring out of the way. The unit charging took the casualties and passed the DT. The defending unit then also threw well and another DT wa...
