Hello again,

More questions:

- How long could take an about face order if a corp is marching? I think this would be close to chaos in same cases, like crossing a mountain pass or whatever.
- If you send a patrol along a road and there are enemy troops at one side of the road (3 or 5 km for example), how many chances are there the patrol discover them?
- We are playing without food rules. If a Corp lost hist supply line which malus you think we should apply?

Thanks in advance!

All good questions :

1- Not long at all, almost no time at all in fact, because every batalion just turns around. The last unit will be first in the new movement.

2- Almost no chance, a patrol was going from point A to B, then observe, then turn back. If they don't have an order to observe around, it is unlikely it will discover the enemy. That said, not impossible with a little luck (like meeting an enemy forage party on its way to find food). Give it 1 chance out of 6 maybe.

3- If you are playing a short campaign, there is no penalty for a short time, say, 8 to 10 days. Troops were carrying enough food for a few days. But the supply line was also where the messages were passing, the convoys, reinforcements, and so on. So there is no penalty for a few days.
