The wording of the rules (and the counters) seems to imply that a disordered defending unit fares better against shock than a normal unit. Does the '+1' DRM shown help the defender or the attacker?

On the Shock Combat and Charge tables, higher modified die rolls are worse for the defender, therefore the +1 DRM helps the attacker.

That's what I would have expected - why would a disordered unit fare better against attack than a normal one? - but the rule didn't make it clear. Thanks all.

It also means, of course, that my entire first play of this game - Blore Heath - was screwed up, since I go it wrong. I had units choosing to be disordered rather than retreat because it would help them next round.....

Oh well - that's what first plays are for...
