Hi all, A couple of questions about detaching cavalry squadrons.

Suppose I have a cavalry brigade of 2 regiments, each of 4 squadrons so 24 miniatures. I want to split in two equal parts one of the two regiments so now my brigade has 3 units, one of 4 squadrons and two of 2 squadrons each.

1. In this case I incremented the numbers of units of my brigade so all my 3 units has to retire in order to test the brigade morale. If I had not split one of the two cavalry regiment only two retiring unit were sufficient to test brigade morale. Is this right? If yes this seems to be a trick to me.

2.If one of the two halves is routing within 15cm of the other one so does the first cause the unit morale to the second one even if they are the same regiment?

3. Just a thought about cavalry formation. Which is the difference between a cavalry column one squadron wide and 4 deep and another one 2 wide and 2 deep? They will use different speed, colum the first one and line the second one, but both will count all 4 squadrons in melee. Is this correct? So in this case which is the advantage of using the line instead of column?

Thanks a lot to everyone
