Inf Line V Cavalry

Post by Trailape »

Ok
Bear with me.
A cavalry (Hussars) unit charges an infantry unit (A) in line that is 16 inches away.
Behind said infantry is another infantry unit (B) in line.
So Unit A conducts a DT and scores a 3. It retreats and bursts through unit B.
B is now unformed and becomes the target of the Hussars.
What does the B unit do?
Is it classed as as being charged from OVER 9 inches away
Or
Being charged within 9 inches (as it’s 6 inches from where unit ‘A’ did it’s test and failed then became the ‘new target’ for the Hussars)?

Now let’s assume it (unit B) is ridden down and the Hussars get a ‘VICTORY / Charge On” result.
Behind B is another infantry Unit in line (Unit C). Again C is only 3 inches behind B.
Does ‘C’ have to do a DT (Infantry in Line being charged by cav) or is it again to close to the Hussars to react?

We would do a DT with C unformed. As the chargers are within 9In (I’m assuming you are 28mm) they could not change formation.

Yes 28mm miniatures in play.
And what about unit ‘B’?

Explains it better, i would reply there but my apps has never been approved. I would class each as separate they will invoke a charge phase in each case. Now we should all have a AU skype group to chat about these things! :)
Indeed 😁
