Re: Artillery supporting fire

Thank you John, I see where you are both coming from! I missed the "no other targets" bit in your original post Michele, and yes I know it was underlined.

Re: Artillery supporting fire

Hi Mark,
My two cents worth...first, the five dice per regiment is GDA. In Pickett's Charge its one dice per stand.
The way I read the modifiers on page 42 is that they apply to each unit.
And a unit that ends up whipped as a result of an STE in defensive fire takes a 1D3 in casualties.
