Skirmishing Cavalry movement

Skirmishing bow armed cavalry are often moved as a single column of bases, but given the size of the bases they cover a large chunk of real estate. Can the bases "snake" around obstacles and along baseboard edges (potentially finishing a move with the unit forming a curve)?

Flanked units falling back

A couple of questions on units fighting to the front and flank. If a unit loses a combat by 2 or 3, (or by a 4 and pass their break test) after modification, they fall back discouraged. - which direction do they fall back - straight back or at 45 degrees from both attacking units as if they were fle...

Three units arranged as per the diagram below. As can be seen unit B has an incomplete rear rank -----BBB AAAB---CCC AAA-----CCC Units A and B are clearly in a battle line, but do units B and C also count as being in a battle line? Or in other words, do you count an incomplete rear rank as covering ...
