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 works out,
Just one part confuses me (maybe because I am no native speaker?): "The wedge cannot strike points upon a unit, or multiple units in line of battle, less than two infantry base widths apart." What does this mean? As I understand it, you cannot attack a unit in line of battle at all. Could you explain this, please?
Also, could anybody post the cavalry wedge rule for comparison, please?
