Wheeling on the edge of the board

Post by Geoffrm on Thu Oct 29, 2015 4:44 am

Hi,
If you have a BG running down the edge of the board and decide to wheel the rear of the BG goes off the board. Is this allowed?

Geoffrm, I am presuming CG war chariots.

5:14 only refers to retreats and pursuits off table and those tend to be frontal.

I would assume that a wheel is acceptable after a half full move as long as the chariot completes its move fully on the table. While it does not say anything specific on the subject it would be a harsh ruling to deny it such a manoeuvre

I do have to ask though how it managed to be like that in the first place. Was it deployed along the table edge?

Hi,
It was a CM, A class I think, that moved sideways until it contacted the table edge and then moved up the table before wheeling. It got me thinking what if it was a large group, say pike three ranks deep, and it could only do a single move the move would end with part of the rear off the table. Just in case I took the Swiss to Cancon.

Ok got it now. Like Starkers says so long as you don't finish the turn with your rear end hanging off the table it's fine. It's also a voluntary move ....not an involuntary move which makes a difference.
It's similar to wheeling a unit in the middle of a line it might take two move phases to clear your neighbour you can't finish the turn sitting on top and often means taking a second move phase straight forward to clear.
