Re: Wedge/Boar's tooth formation

Hi, thanks for your inspiring replys. Regarding the basic concept, I fully agree with Bob: opponent reads combat result one line lower but Wedge unit cannot hold shieldwall. I really like Wayne's suggestion for a special infantry wedge formation. Will definitely try this in some games and see how it...
