...oh, and for the record, I did have a brigade attachment present, and still managed not to become active!!

I feel your pain! :D

In our last Club game one French player failed to activate his cavalry twice despite ADCs on brigade attachment and got overthrown by the Austrian cavalry charge. However, he did succeed in getting Forwards with his infantry brigade and swept across the table throwing the Austrian infantry brigade opposite into chaos. All felt very historical.

All,

Archdukek penultimate reply is as it's meant to be. For an Assault order to "stick" the brigade must obeying orders on the turn the Assault order was issued. If it fails its command roll we assume that the order has not got through at all and will need to be resent - at the 2 ADC cost.

But once successfully in place it remains so, regardless of any future hesitant command roll results, until the order is completed, changed or a Faltering Brigade command roll changes the situation.

Hope that helps.
