Re: Melee vs BUA attacker wins by 1 in 2nd round of melee.

Ok we will treat it like take the ground, unformed for it being a BUA.

Melee vs BUA attacker wins by 1 in 2nd round of melee.

I had noticed a thread on this from March 3rd 2019 BUA's. But in reading did not see a specific conclusion as to weather the attacker could take the ground or has to remain outside the BUA. In chapter 9 under Occupying a BUA Post-Melee it states; The winner of any Melee for a BUA must designate the ...

Re: Melee reforming/ firing after charges/ mass column

We have played this also as Turn 7, Melee victory take ground unformed. Turn 8, if obeying orders; No charge or counter charge movement allowed, can reform in movement phase, so no movement allowed except to reform unless retiring unformed. Turn 9, may act as normal in charge or movement phase. But ...

Re: Colours 2019

Would love to see that with Austrians.

Re: Charge or support?

That is a good question. My thought would be to centralize the charge on the weakest battalion using the support unit rerolls against this weakened battalion to obtain the best possible charge result. Knowing that if the Target unit retreats or retires in the charge phase so does its supports. If th...

Re: Charge or support?

Welcome GDA is a great game. I wonder if you lumping together the charge process at the beginning of the turn and the melee process at the end of the turn. The charge process uses 2d6 roll with the supports able to provide a d6 re-roll. If the units after the charge process continue into melee, then...

Re: After combat in BUA

Yes I agree there does not seem to be anything that states the defender is unformed except in the FAQ video.
Maybe I am missing something that has been stated previously. Interesting question.

Re: After combat in BUA

The French having lost by 4 casualties retreat and he said "the Austrians take their one casualty and because the...

Re: Points based battles

If you look in the FAQ under "Command" you will find point costs for the extra skirmish stands listed. There are a few other point cost adjustments their also.
