Melee casualties and how they get spread out

Post by Aventine » Thu Jul 13, 2017 11:22 am

Played the scenario at the back of the book last night, great game was had. When sorting out a melee do the casualties get spread out amongst the lead unit and supports with the lead unit getting the most, eg 3 units receiving 10, lead unit gets 4 and the supports 3 each. That is how we played it.

Another one came up as we crossed the lane with fences on both sides, are there 2 formation checks? and what happens when a unit advances down the lane at 90 degrees ie spread across the two fences and lane?

Thanks

K,

Glad you had a good game! :D

That's right.

Yes there are - each new/separate obstacle requires a check.

What happens when a unit advances down the lane at 90 degrees i.e. spread across the two fences and lane?

Simply treat this as one test each turn your move down the lane. We assume that once the men have spread out to cater for the fence lines they should be alright for at least a few more minutes.
