Re: Rule Changes

Very interesting. On point 1 there were instances of a centurion joining a 1 base wide superior legionary unit of three bases. This gave them 5 attacks when combined with their pila....really making this type of formation a bit gamey. Imagine facing three such mini columns supported on their flanks ...

Re: Mixed order

If after combat the archers are in the rear of the mixed unit, is there any compulsion/ penalty in leaving the bows in the rear. The bows could still effectively shoot in the second rank acting like a combined formation

Re: Charge near the edge of table

He may be asking about when both evaders and chargers go off table.

Skirmishers evading from charges, page 37

I just re- read this and wanted to know if the charger need to re-organise after ceasing contact with the enemy. In the case of unbarded cavalry they would destroy the skirmishers at the skirmishers initial position. remove them during combat, and then move the cavalry the remaining distance ( max 1...

Skirmish movement

I'm just re- reading page 37 and they only ignore movement penalties that reduce speed. Is the 45 degree arc of vision restriction on page 20 also ignored by skirmishers?
