Contact after fall back

Postby BJ Barry » Sat Mar 31, 2018 6:39 am

Hi to all,

a question about one thing that happens in our latest game.
A unit of close order infantry fights a cavalry one, win the combat and the cavalry must fall back.
Doing so it passes another cacalry unit the is pointint in a difference direction, passing near the back of the friendly unit the cavalry can't allign so he has to move the full 4" back.
Moving to keep the contact the close order infantry touch the flank of the other cavalry, in this case do the infantry get the mounted enemies in the flank, force them to a Cohesion test and if they pass it, they will fight in the next round close combat section?

Hope the drwaing explain better the words:



thank for your answer

In this case, I believe that as the infantry follow up, they will hit the flank of the new cavalry unit. This will be treated as a new charge so the unit will have to take a cohesion test.
