Please see link for the re-fight of a ‘fighting retreat' Napoleonic scenario, published in Wargames Illustrated and in the first edition of the 'Black Powder' rules, using Baccus 6mm figures and the Polemos Ruse de Guerre rules.

Top notch as usual. Yes the generous withdrawal movement was intentional by design to allow units to pull back, withdraw or change places. It allows players to redeploy their formations as they did historically.

Enjoy reading your small action reports as we rarely get the opportunity to play smaller games anymore. It also showcases just how wonderful solo games can be as well.

Thanks Glenn, appreciate it. I think I agree with your premise in Ruse de Guerre that infantry with solid morale should be able to retreat without it being impossibly risky. It makes 'retreating in good order' a viable option for commanders in a way it isn't in some other rulesets.
