[WMR]: Direction of retreat if no contact?
« on: May 04, 2018, 10:22:21 AM »
Hi
after a combat and casualties are removed, it is possible for no enemy stands to be touching the defeated player's unit.

The rules for the direction of retreat don't specify what to do.   

When this came up,  we worked out the direction based on the situation 'before' stands had been removed as casualties.

It just occurred to me that this could also be the case for a supporting unit when the unit in front is destroyed.

I mention this more as an observation than a question.
It's easy to do-the-sensible-thing when both players are sensible. :) 
Thoughts?

Good spot. Your solution is indeed is the most convenient one. We can possibly add it to the future FAQ if neccessary. Thanx.

Wasn't this situation/problem in the original rulebook as just being able to retreat in any direction away from the enemy?  That's what I have always done.

No it was ambivalent in vanilla and FAQ-ed. Off the top of my head in the old rules it is: directly away from the most attacks
