Fighting Directly

Wed Jun 08, 2011 11:41 pm

If a 9Company strong formation of infantry (let's say orcs) is charged in both the front and the rear (by WoMT), would the front three companies and back three companies be fighting directly and the middle three be support? Of course there's the -5 for fighting to the rear, but how many dice would the orcs be allowed to role?
Hopefully that all made sense.

Any company in direct contact is directly fighting. So those 3 coys of Orcs in the middle would be support.

The modifiers are applied on a company by company basis. So the Orcs in the front get 8 attacks per company and the rear orcs get 3 attacks per company, not including charge bonus,fight bonus, etc.,.

Also those attacks must go to whichever company is directly touching them so 24 dice to the enemy in the front and 9 dice to the enemy in the back. You can throw your support dice any way you wish, front or back.
