Enemy facing own side or rear
« on: October 23, 2013, 07:48:25 PM »
Hi,

one thing is was wondering myself for some time now.
If a individual stand has an enemy touching his rear and one touching his side, does it get a command penalty of -2?

I tend to say no, but I would not ask if I would be sure.

Cheers,

Ole

A unit in contact with an enemy can not receive orders. It must fight in the next combat phase.

No, only apply the attack penalty once.  Same thing if a single stand is flanked on both sides. (In most situations like this you're probably toast anyway).
