Cannot believe we have played this wrong for 3 years

Post by Truscott Trotter »

From Rich C on yahoo group
It's quite simple. Troops deploying can fire when they do so (on a 2 or 3), so, at the moment they deploy the Junior Leader has two spare CI. So, in this case he uses them to maximum effect. This is not accidental. It is the one moment when he has absolute control. His enemy have not seen him, his men are ready, he has pointed out their targets, he has checked the range. He looks around, every man hangs on his next word.....FEUR!

We always made the section JL pay a CI to fire on deployment as against a 2 getting it for free.........DOH :oops:

It's really easy for something to become accepted......while being entirely incorrect? I mean I'm old so I remember the days before you could google song lyrics.....how wrong we were at times :roll: ?

Thank you for posting that. I'll bet there are others making the same assumptions and wrong plays.

You're not the only one TT. It never leapt out of the rules at me either, but when Rich answered the question it made sense. Now just need to remember it. :-)

It does make sense, although I never saw it either. I wonder who pointed it out to Rich? ;)

We've never played it that way either. I've got to say, if that's what Rich intended all along it's not exactly jumping out from the rules.
