Hello people. The topic says it all. I'm starting a Empire army, probably a Marienburger mercenary army, and I understand most of the rules of the game EXCEPT for the detachment rules. Please don't tell me to look at the Empire book because I already have and these rules are the only ones that go over my head. Thanks in advance for any help given
Can anyone give me examples or tips on how detachments work? I'm not asking for rules, because that's taboo in these forums, just examples and tips.
How do I line the detachent up in the parent regiment or do I just put the detachment near the parent unit?
Detachments are small units (1/2 the size of parent units at max) who assist units. They set-up within 3". Other than that they are normal units EXECPT, Stand and shoot, Counter-charge and suppporting charge with the parent unit, if within 3" of Parent unit still. They have more rules but I can't cover then anymore without breaking da rules. Hope it helps you understand the page in the book.
Never drink more than 2 Pan-Galactic Gargle Blasters unless you are a thirty-ton Mega Elephant with brocal pheomonia!
Thanks alot for your answer, ZB. Your summary on detachments helped me out immensely. I guess I was trying to make the rules harder then they actually are
