Demoralisation

Post by Polish Lancer » Mon Jul 15, 2019 2:40 am

So my brigade has, 4 battalions, skirmish screen and a battery, so to demoralize this brigade, you would need to disperse 4 units?

When does demoralization take place? If say in the case above, I loose my 4th unit, then brigade will Falter and it also becomes Demoralized! Because it has become demoralized does the falter cause the dispersal immediately? Or

Or do we wait for next move for the demoralization to kick in and the brigade needs to attempt to recover from the Falter and apply the Falter result to the brigade and thereafter the demoralization command role?

Have you checked the FAQ?

Point 4 under the Command section
4. Demoralised Brigades. Only brigades that are currently demoralised will disperse if further units disperse from within the command. E.G. If a brigade has three units and is currently steady but then loses two units so causing the brigade to both falter and be demoralised. The brigade will not disperse at this point as it was not already demoralised at the time of the unit dispersals. Should the brigade fail its subsequent command roll and remain faltering then it would disperse. (p10, 34, 86)

So I assume the battery and skirmishes add tot he 50% demoralization level?

Hi PL,

Yes I believe that all units count towards demoralisation levels.

Yes they do and that's one reason why the loss of a skirmisher screen is more important in these rules than in many others as it counts as a full unit in the Brigade.
