Hoping someone here can me out. We played this weekend and looking back over the rules I think I did somethings wrong.

1) When a unit is in line can the rear stands fire?
2) When moving backwards how much does it reduce movement?
3) Artillery that is on the same level as their own infantry can they fire over them? It looks like if the friendly unit is more than 4" the artillery can fire but does the enemy need to be a certain distance away from the friendly unit?
4) When a natural 10 is rolled do I use the value in the Additional Affects for the adjusted roll or is there a chart I roll against?

Appreciate the help

I hope I can help.
Question 1. Yes all stands fire when in line. For each front rank stand a rear rank stand my fire at the same target. Range is measured from the front rank.
Question 2. They move full movement, based on the maneuver table result.
Question 3. If the artillery and a friendly unit are on the same level, the artillery can fire over them if, the target is on a higher level and the friendly unit must be more than 4" from the battery firing and more than 4" from the point aimed at on the target.
Question 4. On an unmodified roll of 10 during fire two things happen. A firing unit or a gun stand get a low ammo marker. The other is the firing player checks on the Fallen Leader table and the result is applied to one enemy leader within 4" of any stand of the targeted unit. The fire effects on the target as well as any additional effects are based on the final modified di roll.

Question 2 add on. If you move more than 1/2 your move backward in front of the enemy you are considered to have turned your back toward the enemy. You can be shot in the back.

You got really quick, really good answers to your questions here, paulgenna. In the event that on another occasion you don't, another option is the Regimental Fire and Fury forum.

Hey Guys,

Thanks for the quick replies. These will help alot.
It sounds like we did not make too many mistakes other than moving backwards and artillery we allowed to fire if the troops were on the same level as long as they were the same distance as the gun to the friendly units.

Garryowen, I tried to register on the RFF site but it is not sending me an email so I gave up.

That is disturbing about the RF&F site, paulgenna.


P.S. I just went to the forum and found this under date of August 1st.
