Deploying onto new Combat Patrols

Sirs, Once you deploy a fresh Combat Patrol what are the timing rules/penalties for then deploying a platoon onto that CP if you wanted to do it on the same game turn? Another way to look at this, is this deploying order given to the CP already on the table (requiring the Command Order option with d...

Re: Unit deployments

Tomm,
I believe the rules allow you to deploy Combat Patrols (scouts) next to platoons allowing you to send some "scout detachments forward" as in PITA; of course the only restriction is 3 CPs per Company. At any rate in my solo test games I am finding the scouting rules flexible and workable.

Re: Platoon arrival restrictions?

Thanks!
I had read the shorter deploying section in the Orders options which didn't include the needed restriction. Again, thanks - really enjoying my solo games.

Example: a German CP is behind a hedge; A British platoon rushes to the other side of the hedge (almost in contact), fires 4 dice ...

Unit deployments

Hi, When deploying, do commanders have the option of allocating a single section/squad - or must it always be the full 3-squad platoon? Followup, if you can deploy a single section would it be possible to later deploy the rest of the platoon beside the on-table section, as you do with Combat Patrols...

Re: Carry On, Gaming

I just thought that recalling Mr.Williams was very laudable. I am sure when Richard plays Colonials some of his regulars are from the 3rd Foot and Mouth.
