Extra ADC assignment for poor Brigade Commander

Post by MarkKetteman » Fri Aug 11, 2017 12:36 pm

Played a cracking game last night. Franco-Germans roundly defeated Austrians in an equal points game.

One thing came up. I made one of the Austrian Brigadiers poor. The player needed to give an extra ADC to this Brigade for any tasking. This led to the player not using ANY ADCs for this command throughout the game. It appeared better to not task him than use two or three ADCs.

I am thinking of two alternative approaches for the next game; I want to penalise the poor brigadier but not as heavily.

1) Change the activation roll for poor brigadiers - so when on table one of the ADCs would activate on a 3+ (off table on a 6) to account for the blundering fool not having his ear trumpet ready when the messenger arrives etc.

2) Not allow any Brigade attachment tasking for poor brigadiers (so no re-rolls).

Has anybody else found this to be a problem ?

I think that in large games (then many ADCs) the current optional rule works well.
On the contrary in small game (about 4 or 5 ADCs) your suggestion is ok for me
and therefore his activation roll on a 4+ works better.
