Re: Shooting and combined formations

In response to Robin's post on this subject in the Facebook group (I don't 'do' FB): 1. The unit cannot be Open Order, as the rule clearly states that "the whole unit will count as Close Order if it contains any Close Order troops." 2.

Re: Shooting and combined formations

Re: Base widths

Bear in mind that several key elements of the rules, including shooting and HtH combat, are determined by base, or by the number of bases per unit.
