Flank marches - if they dont arrive???

Post by frazer on Mon Oct 13, 2014 8:46 am

hi

played a great game this weekend against Dave Knight and his feudal english.

Dave had his army in just two commands and sent the largest on a flank march.

i broke his on-table command and baggage but this combined wasnt enough to break the army.

for three or four turns i waited for the other command to arrive.

what if it never arrived??? is the game a draw, as i cant break his army VDT.

was also a little strange just rolling for initiative and moving units by myself, literally killing time.

should flank marches by limited in size to less than 50% VDT?


all the best

Oops!

The rule already exists, Advanced Impetus page VI, Flank Marches, first paragraph "No more than 50% of the army (in VDs) can be sent on a FM."
