PURSUIT BY SUPPORTING UNITS

Post by Dennis Maxentius on Wed Jan 14, 2015 11:13 pm

Gone blank Embarassed Shocked . Can't find a reference to show if a Supporting Unit can pursue if it is not in melee and the Main Unit pursues. Help Crying or Very sad

Not sure what you mean by not in melee mate, to be a support unit it must be in so I will proceed on that basis.

The only Support units that can follow up are: Impetuous , Heavy Cavalry and Heavy Chariots.

They can do so only if the main unit pursues

Ref: 7.7.3 p41 Main Rule Book

Thanks for that. By not in melee I meant that it was not engaged by another Unit and so would be able to move in pursuit.

I thought I read somewhere any Support Unit could also pursue if the Main Unit did so but rolled a separate dice. I must have been having a Blonde moment.

Cheers,

Dennis

You are correct Dennis. Take a look at the very end of 7.7.3 on page 41 for the reference.

Thanks. You were right only Impetuous, Heavy Cav or Chariot Supporting Units can pursue using a separate dice roll.

So I was having a Blonde moment. Shocked Embarassed

Only partially blonde Dennis. You were correct about supporting units pursuing. The only caveat is as GG says, that pursuit by support units is limited to certain types.

It's just blonde highlights. They'll grow out.
I'd be more worried about the curling.

Dont worry mate it is already happening from all the questions for the rest of us too, but dont lose your 'Vercingetorix Moustache' in the process Dennis! Marvelous! Very Happy

Be aware gentlemen you are dealing with the Paul Hogan of War Gaming in a nice but frustrating colourful way. Means for very Entertaining games, and a very good painter of mins.

Thankyou for the very civilised info gentlemen.
