Re: My Bases Are Not Deep Enough?

Everything is well, just been busy lots of things including actual gaming.

I actually run a small charity game convention too, which is coming up next month, so will be up to my eyeballs until that wraps up.

Re: Flanking groups

Mounted troops (especially light horse) do not like getting hit in the flank when they have no clear line of retreat, their whole point is mobility when it comes to defense. Pike blocks (i.e. dual ranks) are also very vulnerable to this sort of attack since the front stand is not able to turn to fac...
