Converting Armies

Re: Column flank attack clarification

Those are the relevant rules and the intent in you situation is that the rear support would apply to the front combat. I realize flank combat in Triumph is quite different from DBA and other DBM style games which could confuse people familiar with the other systems. There is no appedix diagram repre...

Re: Column flank attack clarification

Kontos, That is correct the fight is always to the front if there is front contact, so in this case the skirmisher is not the fight. So the pike gets rear support to the front, unless the active player chooses to fight with the skirmisher first to attack the rear rank first to peel them off, but he ...

Sorry, no insult to the Gasgan Warband meant, I was actually carrying over the Skirmisher term from the previous discussion without thinking.

If the pike wanted to tr...

Re: Column flank attack clarification

Exactly, it just depends.

In this case the trade off is that if the Skirmisher loses, it would have backed off and the front attack is not longer overlapped and the door is open for falling back.

But Skirmishers cannot take a pike block apart simply by touching it, they have to do something.

Re: Column flank attack clarification

- The combat factors before rolling are Pk: 2 (+3 vs foot, no rear support because of flank contact, -1 for flank contact) vs HF: 4 (+4 vs foot) Bill, you are right, I skimmed this line to fast because there is rear support. The skirmisher attack has to be done first and only if it wins does it str...
