M14 Question
« on: February 08, 2019, 05:24:01 PM »
M 14 "Double Move: 2 Consecutive Green or (White) moves
IS M 14 limited to a max of 2x the move distance for a Tug or Sug
and/or does that include a total of 2 Green or White actions including any action between M1 to M 15
An example would be M1 (Switch Flexibles) followed by M4 (Advance with a Double Wheel)
or for that matter any movement that did NOT bring a unit doint  an M 14 move (within 4 BW from enemy TUG's)
Clarification appreciated

M14.  Essentially you are allowed to do two consecutive GREEN moves as long as you stay 4BW away from enemy TuGs.

So Tribal (who need a RED), can only do two M2 (advance straight ahead) moves.
So Formed (who need a YELLOW), can do M2 (advance straight ahead) M3 (advance with wheel) M6 (advance and contract) or M7 (expand while stationary).
Drilled (also need a Yellow) can do the same moves as formed or M4 (advance with double wheel) M5 (advance with shift) or M9 (turn on spot).
Skirmishers (ho need a GREEN), can do any two moves (as all skirmisher moves are either white or green).
A Flexible TuG in skirmish formation can Switch Flexibles and then do another move - so yes your example would be fine.

Hope that helps.

Amusingly in (comedic) theory a SUG/Skirmisher can make an infinite number of moves - M14 being a Green move could be taken as one of the 2 white/green moves (logically the 2nd) allowing another 2 moves and so on and on and on and on ...  :o :P 8)

Great examples from Richard.
Exactly so.
Therefore meeting the intention that:

  • TRIBALS struggle to do more than bomb straight ahead, so had better get them deployed in the right place.
    FORMED can wheel to get to places.  Can do reserves pretty well.
    DRILLED can do all sorts of clever things if the player is good enough to make full use of the skills.
    SuG can fly around but are limited by the 4BW from TuGs.
    Drilled flexibles can switch and move thereby allowing Romans say to exit terrain in Loose and form up.
    SUG felxibles can move and regroup to be ready to charge - beware unfriendly Huns on the flank.

Trwisted evil prize of the year so far for Nik for the other one  ??? ::) ;D  Yes ok (other) or (above) really needed for true legal impenetrability.  Well spotted eagle eyes!
