A question about something you said in the video, if I may. Early on (around the 9:45 mark), you say that the rabble and skirmishers can only move as a group into the rough terrain because they're rabble and skirmishers. Can you elaborate on why that is?

Many thanks - great video.

When moving as a group in rough terrain, most troops have to pay extra command points (essentially one command point for each column in the group). A group which is made entirely of rabble and skirmishers does not.

Hope that helps?

It does, Rod, thanks. Soon as you said command points, I was able to find it in 32.1.c in the rules.

Thanks!
