The rules say under 10.2.2 that they can be build (with an action card) in any space that is in full supply, no mentioning of SPs or units. Yet under 13.1.4 (full supply) it says that "units need full supply to build a fort". Are units are prerequisite?

(For entrenchments it is especially mentioned that SPs are needed to build them.)

13.1.4 States:

(13.1.4) Full Supply: Full Supply is needed:
• To build a Fort (10.2.2).


There is no mention of "units". Units are not a prerequisite to build a fort.

Hello Steffen,

No, the space doesn't require SP's to build a fort. It just has to be in a controlled space in full supply.

You may want to have SP's present though, to protect it from invasion by the enemy.

Ah, i'm looking at the printed rules; there it reads:

(13.1.4) Full Supply: Units need Full Supply:
• To build a Fort (10.2.2).

The rules are in the process of undergoing a comprehensive revision, which should be completed soon. I will defer to developer Jim Dauphinais, insofar as posting any updated versions here. I will e-mail you the current rules.

At this point, the living rules consist of the March 3, 2016 edition, the errata of April 12, 2016 and the update of Nov. 4, 2016. GMT will soon be publishing a revised rulebook incorporating the changes.
