Retiring shooters
« on: June 20, 2020, 03:41:29 AM »
Hello,

We had a our first proper go round last night. Most things moved smoothly, which probably means we missed things

a couple of things jumped out as odd, looking to clarify;

Had a shaken cavalry unit in column of squadrans charge down a forested hill into a limbered artillery battery, past a 'retiring' square and within deadly fire range.

Q. When a unit is 'Retiring' can it still shoot?
Q. Is there a down grade for shooters who are badly shaken or retiring?

Other question that popped up was the movement into a BUA and occupying to defend. Does this require a particular movement order/card?

thanks
Richard

Fantastic.

For most things to move smooth at this stage is good to hear even if you missed things ...

Something of an epic moment that would have made the history books.  :)

At present retiring units still fire (unless artillery). I think we could argue adding a downgrade or even not firing at all as reasonable. One to decide with more testing.  Have stayed generous at the moment as it gives them a glimmer of hope if the enemy attacking them are themselves shaken.
