conduct of an infantry assault

Post  lu zi shen on Thu Jan 11, 2018 7:58 pm

Hi everyone !

I tried a few times playing KS... but every time, I was stopped by unanswered questions ...

three major point of interrogation:

-the 1828 rule says infantry attaks are conducted after a skirmish attack (against the enemy skirmishers), the skirmish fight beeing delt "according to the usual rules".
Ok... what are these usual rules?
or, being said another way, how do you resolve it ?

-the rules are clear about firefight... meaning clear as long as nobody moves, and everyone fires at each other.
but how do you resolve the effect of fire on a moving infantry. What rangeband do you use (i.E: a column at 300 pace from a line, advance 250 while beeing fired on... do you use the "up to 100" dice, or the 200-300 line on the infantry fire table? )

-what about a succefull assault: I really have trouble comprehending point 4.3.2 and 4.3.6 of the TFL rule (what about "the full loss" of point 4.3.2 ? how can a succefull attacker renew his attack on a defeated troop if these are already 250 paces away ?... how do you treat repulsed or defeated toop -who cannot defend- if attacked again... do you downgrade only totally defeated troop? or do you use the 1828 variant "-1 for everybody R/D/TD)

- and, as i see it, there is no bonus for a second line of infantry in defense? I'm i right ?

As you can see, I've not yet succesfully resolved a combat in KS What a Face . Yet, I'm more than half convinced these are silly questions (i'm sure the third one is just the result of me being thick-headed)... so I beg your forgiveness (and for the spelling, beeing french)

Thanks in advance
