Re: Move Straight Ahead Question

Bob, thank you - I was in error.

At the end of movement a unit can rotate - understood Q. Moving straight ahead and rotating - is this moving at an angle (as ...

Re: Anglo Danish v Dark Age Scots

Re: Dark Age Scots v Middle Imperial Roman

I was the (poor) Roman player. I did forget the Praetorians were Veteran but none were Stubborn . Out of the 5 cohesion tests, all at the max of 9, I rolled 7,11,11,12,12 !!!

Re: Depiction of commanders

If the Centurion is permanently part of a Unit then a Centurion figure should to be included in one of the purchased Legionary bases (in place of standard figure). He is not an extra base for the Unit.

Re: Fall Back Question

My intuitive thought is that Red 2 would wheel back their left flank as they are pushed by Red 1.

Re: Andover Hampshire event

I like the sound of this, but for me as non-competitive (still learning!). My parents live in Andover so accommodation is sorted :-)
