Re: Charge Rules

Hi markantony and munin, I think I would have been a bit more draconian and treated the scenario similar to a Rout! result on the Charge Combat Results table. The losing unit immediately disperses. Any supports are whipped. The dispersed unit’s brigade is now marked with a falter marker. Whipped uni...

Re: Reforming Skirmisher and Fog of War

My two cents worth on this. Can a skirmisher unit reform behind a phantom Fog of War card, No. The close order unit that the skirmishers reform behind must exist and they certainly don’t for a phantom Fog of War card. Does reforming behind a Fog of War card expose the units represented by the Fog of...

Re: Unlimbering Artillery

Some people have reduced the battery still further. Two-Gun Sections (1 model gun) The rules don’t really cover 2-gun sections (one model gun) such as that deployed in some historical scenarios. Here’s a scenario specific house rule that’s been used by……. And seems to work. A One-gun model fires as ...

Re: Dispersing and an Elephant Test?

I agree with John. I seem to do a lot that :D Page 67 gives a clue; Disperse. The unit has broken completely and the men skedaddle. Remove from play. Units disperse if: a. It reaches its Casualty Dispersal Point. Therefore there is no unit to take an Elephant Test they have already gone. Regards Tony

Re: Must you conduct Defensive Fire when charged?

Yes, I agree with John on this. Its possibly not quite as clearly stated as other points in the charge procedure, for example; "The attacker always has the option to use fellow flanking units as supports" and "The defender must use flank/rear supports. Nevertheless I too think "may" does mean the de...

Re: On Table Reserves - Movement

I agree with John on this.
If your on table reserve starts to move it means two things.

You have used a staff officer to "Commit Reserve" and your men are no longer in reserve.

Re: Whipped and the next move

Hi Dave, I have been a bit busy of late so I am just catching up on the forum. I hesitate to question your answer, given they are your rules, but on page 49 under "Whipped & routed reforming" it says; If the brigade is Obeying Orders, any Whipped and Routed units are considered automatically rallied...
