charging skirmishers and formed unit behind

Post by EQUITES » Mon Jul 17, 2017 8:03 am

hello,
i have a doubt about this case :
a column wants to charge a line screened by skirmishers
then the column declares charge at skirmishers that fire and evade inflicting 1 kia.
Now the column continues to charge the line and receives other 2 kias (defender fire).
Have I add 1 + 2 = 3 casualties when calculating modifiers for Charges Table at this point ?

Thank you
Michele

I'd say yes, it is 3 casualties received during the charge and move to contact by the attacker. I can see no reason to treat them differently, They are going to have an impact on the attacker's cohesion/morale at a critical time which is what the Charge Procedure represents.
