Rule 8 - Combat Quick Results

The infantry on the left are in square so that the gunners can evade to safety if charged by enemy cavalry.


This rule is to cover those times when a result is so obvious there is no need to wargame it.


Cavalry can not charge formed square

cavalry must half 4" from square

Infantry can not charge cavalry

If infantry column of march, line or square approach within 4”, cavalry must withdraw to maintain 4” distance.

Infantry Column of March contacted by cavalry

Limbered artillery contacted by cavalry

If artillery unable to evade they will be cut down and lose all guns
