Re: Fall back question

Thanks Martin, we played the worst case...the flanked unit was toast, as expected.

Re: Shielded when shooting

Thanks Wayne, I missed that; and that's the way we play it. However the final paragraph on page 13 (1.2) implies that shooters cannot use Shields.

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 ...
