Re: Step out question

I'd say: Ambuscade: possibly. Though I tend to think that the intent is 'no' because Rich Clarke has ruled with regard to cavalry and Ambuscade that it's just 3d6 movement, regardless of their speed (however, just me, I'd say yes and I'd allow cavalry to move at the Canter/Gallop with appropriate mo...

Re: Sharpe Practice Characteristic

I think it's extrapolating from the fact you can only Step Out once, use Drill once or fire one Crashing Volley.

It's seems fairly reasonable (although it's clearly card-driven characteristics that would be meant. Some are passive, like Aggressive and so would apply all the time).

Re: Core List/Sharpulator Contradictions

Yes, a Status IV Leader is 12 points (and a bargain at that - I'd use Status IV Leaders with some caution, they're extremely useful).

Re: Some dumb questions about fistifuffs

If you're charging unloaded it is indeed the impetus of your charge and the threat of naked cold steel that is important. Loaded or unloaded is no odds. It seems more than fair enough to me. Meeting an attack unloaded is a different kettle of kippers. Having a shot to fire into the face of an onrush...

Re: SP2 Hit Allocation and Saving Roll Situation

Nothing. But sometimes you have a situation where one group partially blocks another and the further group is the desired target. It just seems sensible to me to split hits in that sort of case.

Re: SP2 Hit Allocation and Saving Roll Situation

I'd play it as When the Formation fires, all groups share the hits When the single Group fires, it chooses the Unit it wishes to target. However if (and only if) that involves firing through another Unit then the hits would be shared. I don't think base to base contact enters into it at all. What do...

Re: Thin Red Line Question

It specifically says 'if loaded' so if you're loaded you fire and charge, otherwise you just charge. As you're getting 3 or 4 Actions for your card expenditure, I'd say asking my for another Action might be pushing it . . . There's also the fact that it says 'activate to . . .', which implies all ac...
