Re: charging

Well all that Barry said and then there's the flow of the turn, the charge move is over and done with before the shooting phase. Once contact is made there is no shooting into melee. Now if that horse unit fails to charge and are just left sitting there, then fire away. :)

Re: Silly Question

I believe it was put in for people who wanted to play with larger battalions. I'll look deeper tomorrow. Someone else may chime in.

Re: Commander Ability

There were many playability vs realism discussions when we were play testing the rules. Some survivors are in the optional rule section. Not knowing how many games you have under your belt or if you play with like minded opponents. I would give a few games a try as written then modify with house rul...

Re: Commander Ability

Hi Brian, The rules are taking everything you just said into consideration but consolidating it into one roll. The command phase of the turn could get bogged with rolling for every commander. You are free to play how you would like by adding your house rules here and there, we have ours as well. I d...

Re: BLB1 vs BLB2

BLB1 simple, fast play, rules open to interpretation and can be aggravating if you like to be told how to handle every situation. BLB2 medium difficulty, rules more defined with additional information on gaming GNW and painting figures. Both are labors of love, well supported here, fun to play and g...

Re: BUAs

If you are within the 5" ZOC no you cant. Your men are mustering up into assault formations and getting ready to attack. By the rules those outside of the ZOC can return fire with modifiers. A smart defender will have troops nearby so he can feed men into the BUA to replace any you have killed. Doin...

Re: BUAs

OK Mark after reading both the shooting and fighting in BUA sections the answer is yes, and no. Part of your answer can be found on page 63. If you have units within the 5" ZOC they must either assault or withdraw. If assaulting they cannot shoot. Units outside of the ZOC may act as they see fit, i....

Re: Moan!

I love this period. Hmm Waterloo... Isn't that where Napoleon tried to delay the inevitble? Pointless debate, history would have played out as it did anyway. Interesting battle though.

Re: BUAs

dont have my rules handy but, i think those outside the zone of control can. those inside it are commited to assault. again im just making a wild guess, i'll get the rules later and edit as needed.

Re: (yet) some more Qs

Hope these help. 1.If you give a Defence Against Horse order. Does it continue in effect until you change it with another order, or do you need to use an order to renew it next turn? Defense against horse is a formation and not an order like the Defend order. You need to give a Form order to the uni...
