I was wondering about moving directly backwards.
I have MV of 4". Assuming that I am facing the
center of the table. I am presuming that the most
I could BACK UP would be 2". Here's my logic:
According to the rules, I burn 1/4 of my move (1")
to turn 180 degrees. then I move 2" and BURN 1/4
of the move (another 1") to turn back around 180
degrees... Does this seem right?
I guess the rule would be: In order to move backwards
and remain forward facing, you lose 1/2 movement.
It would also address side stepping. If you wanted to
sidestep, you would turn 90 degrees right or left
(losing 1/4 MV) and then move and lose 1/4 MV to
The other thing is about a right or left turn. According
to the picture, if I have a rank and file unit that is
5 x 4 (20 models), and I turn right 90 degrees,
I become a 4 x 5 unit.
So If I wanted to turn right and move and reform
to 5x4, I could only move 1" (MV=4)
Turn right (lose 1"), move 1" and reform (lose 2") =4
You can make any number of legal manoeuvres as long as the distances used are equal to or less than your basic move.
So as long as you don't try to make turns and such that amount to more than 100% of your basic move, any combination is legal (even if to some it looks like tactical cowardice ).
