Welcome to Librarium Online!
I've heard the term march-blocking a lot and have no idea what it means in game terms, any help?
March Blocking is when you are denying you're opponite, so he can no longer march, and travels with his normal movement instead of double. You can achieve this by:
Placing scouts withing 8 inches or so (or 10, I could be wrong)
Speeding up you're fast calvary to slow down their advance.
The whole point of march blocking is to slow down the rate of speed your opponite is going at.
but then wouldn't your opponent just charge whatever you used for the march-block
Yes, to put them in disarray... you should have cheap troops to do this, just have them flee. Because if you really thing about it, to have a unit of say 300 points turn around and attack a unit of 10 scouts while a cannon is pound there other forces is quite an amazing thing.Originally Posted by Chuffles
In addition skirmishers can be useful, since they can travel in terrain where a ranked unit couldn't reach them with a charge, yet still march block.

Skirmishers are very useful, but I mainly play Dwarfs who don't have any! I always get my grubby mits on them when I can + cavalry which Dwarfs also can't get.Originally Posted by Grey
