Flank Contact CLarification - Difficult Ground

Post by Zippee on Sun Jul 19, 2015 9:24 am

Finished a very enjoyable game yesterday which was our first use of the revised AI.

On the whole we thoroughly approved, liked the +1d6 for Discipline and the flank contact and the requirement for a (modified) Discipline test for evasion. All good.

We did have one query for clarification on flank support though. We had a FL combat through a large wood and wondered if flank support counted. Granted the rule says it counts between units that could form groups and isn't limited to being able to form a group (as disordered can give support).

We opted to deny it in woods as we felt that units should feel somewhat isolated in the condition and it gave a bit of distinction to fighting across terrain. No real preference either way but it might be worth a note in the rule to clarify as we're probably not the only ones who hesitated.
