My PhD thesis - available at all good booksellers... ;0)
Hi Martin - no problem, the question crops up frequently as an errata question. It was addressed in the Stamford Bridge series rules. Simply add this paragraph to the end of rule 14.4
'If the leader survives this check he is simply placed with the nearest friendly unit. If multiple friendly units are equal distance from the leader the owning player may choose which hex to displace to'.
Only leaders are immune to the disorder result. Units stacked with leaders do suffer the disorder result.
Please also note that the combat chart is missing the modifier for charging into an enemy flank / rear (+2). It is the exposure of unit's flanks that opens the game up.
Hello Norm - thanks for the clarification and yes, I've already been availing myself of flank/rear attacks - they really do mix things up a bit! I am rather addicted to your game at the moment and it'll be hitting the table again very shortly. I know that you say a new player should wait until they've logged two or three games before passing judgement, but I already realise how great it is!!
(By the way, I am Martyn, not Martin - thanks! )
