"Whipped" Skirmishers! Do they "unform" friends

Post by Trailape »

Quick Question without notice!
"Whipped" Skirmishers! Do they "unform" friends is they fail in their evade test and they have friends within 6 inches to their rear?
In other words does their first six inches of 'fleeing' / running / routing cause their comrades behind them to be come unformed?
Cheers

Hi Trailape,

I would say yes.

Page 49: Interpenetration (Passing through friendly units):
Skirmishers may move through any troop type at normal speed, including double quick, without effect.

But....

Passed though by Broken Units: any unit that is passed through by either a retiring, whipped or routing unit for the first 10cm [6"] of the compulsory move immediately becomes Unformed.

Any broken unit that ends its move in the middle of a friendly unit takes as much extra movement as necessary until it clears the unit.

Regards
Tony
