The charge procedure is still the one area I'm unsure of so help with a couple of questions would be great.
1. When a brigade is on an attack order and is charging it may call on supports from other units on the flank that are within 5cm. But the rules state that all units within 5cm count as a massed column. So I'm unsure how a brigade can attack, not as a massed column and claim support. Is it where infantry lines are giving support? help:)
2. When an 2 ADCs are placed on a brigade for infantry assault can another ADC be placed for brigade activation? If the brigade becomes hesitant are the infantry assault ADCs lost?
3. Once a charging unit has been moved to the 5cm point from the target, if the defender has a supporting unit to the flank and within 5cm would they also attempt to fire on the charger? What happens if, because of the 45 degree arc of fire, they are unable to fire all their figures? Do we use the 3/4 or 1/2 rule under restricted fire rule on page 77 and only inflict casualties on the charger?
Or if they have another target should they fire on that? This is where I'm very unclear and videos etc I've looked at so far don't seem to cover this...
