We had a game of BTLB2 today to try to get more convercent with the rules, many of our previous games have been disrupted by discussions about what parts of the rules mean!
Today, we found 3 areas of difficulty we could not find answers to in the rule book:
1) A cavalry squadron routed off table (they were surrounded and could go nowhere else) The pursuers had to follow, do the pursuers come back on table later, and if so, how?
2) The Rules (Page 51 'Support') - seem to say a brigade of 3 battalions, which loses 1 of its battalions leaves the other 2 battalions of the brigade 'Isolated', though if a nearby battalion of a different brigade is close it they are neither Supported or Isolated. Is this right?
3) One of our cavalry units tried to attack an enemy cavalry unit from the edge of a light wood, but could not charge, as it was disordered. The trouble was, the enemy horse was within 3" of them, so they could not move forward at all as they were in 'minimum separation distance'. What can we do in this instance?
We managed to sort another query, which was about when you test to charge home. It was on the BTLB1 adenda sheet available from this site.
We thought it a pity the charge sequence for Horse on that didnt make it into BTLB2!
