Pictish War Hounds query

Post by tonicnh » Sun Dec 16, 2018 11:01 pm

Hope you good folks can help with a couple of queries that arose in our Dux Brit game yesterday which I cant seem to find an answer to

We had a situation where I decided to attack a group of enemy missile troups with my war hounds

Q1. Can missile/skirmish troops shoot at war hounds if theyactivate before the hounds? if so what do war hounds count as for hit resolution?

I'm thinking yes and treat the hounds as skirmishers for the purposes of hit resolution

Q2 if the hounds make contact are the missile/skirmish troops dispersed or would you allow them to evade (or something else)?

Looking forward to receiving the benefit of your combined wisdom

regards

Off the top of my head, not sure about shooting, though 'counts as' skirmish troops seems reasonable.

For the charge, I might allow a limited attempt to evade, but realistically no-one is going to out-run an attack dog! If the troops try to evade, then dogs fight as if to troop's rear, troops cannot fight back.
If troops stand to receive the dog's charge then they fight as skirmishers.
