    P14 “The measurements between units...”

    Rewrite as: “For example you may measure the distance between your unit and the enemy unit to ensure both units remain at least 4” apart. This measurement is taken from the closest part of your unit to the closest part of the enemy unit.”

    P14 “When we measure the distance of movement...”

    Rewrite as: “When we measure the movement distance of the Command Base, the measurement is taken from the front of the Command Base once it has been turned.” 

    Declaring distances:

    P14 “For example, if you state your intention on entering a forest....”

    Rewrite as: “For example, if you state your intentions to enter a forest to take advantage of the protection the forest offers and you place at least half of your bases completely within the forest, you will always have the protection of the forest even if you accidently move a base out of the forest.”

    Advantage and disadvantage:

    P15 “For example, an artillery unit....”

    Rewrite as: “For example, an artillery unit of the Old Guard comprised of four bases, and classified as ELITE, which has unlimbered in its previous movement phase, fires at a British infantry unit and its skirmishers positioned in a forest.”

    More to come.

    One item that I don't think the FAQ looked at was assaulting Buildings, if you charge one and capture it, the other guy, if he had earlier parked a unit within 4 of the building (or just behind it) now forces the charger back out of the building.  

    You can now combine this with a creatively-placed objective marker.

    David, the above suggestions are just rewrites of the current rules to a more understandable english language. NaW did not translate well in some sections of the book.

    Simone don't forget to check the NaW FAQ.

    Amendments from the NaW FAQ

    Terrain effects chart

    P26 insert to chart a ‘D’ for Disadvantage in the box Infantry Fire Marsh.


    Moving artillery units

    P41 add to the paragraph “When an artillery battery unlimbers, replace the limber with one of the artillery bases aligned where the front of the limber is.”


    Command and control

    P43 add Replacement Generals have to be placed in command with at least one of their units.


    Firing at artillery units:

    P48 Add Raw infantry re-roll hits against unlimbered non-compressed artillery TWICE. This is an exception to the dice rolling rules on page 14.


    Skirmisher casualties caused by infantry fire:

    P52 add When firing with Raw troops, check for skirmisher casualties before re-rolling hits.



    P55 “For example, the firing unit declares its target and fires,....” Add to end of sentence. “This is modified by terrain factors (see p.26) like other shooting.”


    Which units can charge or be charged at:

    P58, 4th paragraph. Correct the first sentence to read ‘No unit situated outside of command distance at the start of the charge movement can charge the enemy’. This means that if a commander is eliminated during a charge, it may mean that other members of his force cannot charge. However, a breakthrough charge can be made when out of command.


    Move to contact:

    P59 add new paragraph after 2nd paragraph “On the rare occurrence that a charging unit contacts two units at exactly the same distance, the controller of the charging unit decides which one to fight. Note that if the charging unit is a cavalry unit and wins the combat, it could do a breakthrough charge onto the other unit contacted.

    If a general is contacted by an enemy unit, it must attach to the nearest friendly unit.”



    P62 Add new sentence to first paragraph: If the charging unit starts ……., the latter result being taken as definitive.(insert) “If the retreating unit does not pass the DT, it cannot return any defensive fire. The attacking enemy does not, therefore, have to pass an ET in order to complete the charge.”



    P63 Add new sentence to end of paragraph 4, “Retreating units that cannot complete a full retreat move without being stopped by impassable terrain or enemy are eliminated.”


    Reactions of a cavalry unit charged by cavalry

    P65 add to end of 2nd paragraph “Cavalry can only be charged by infantry if the cavalry is in a Wood or Forest, or is in March Column. In this case, the cavalry may choose to Receive the Charge, or Evade (light cavalry only).”


    Reactions of a cavalry unit charged by cavalry

    1. Evade the charge (only Light Cavalry)

    Add to end of 1st paragraph “If a cavalry unit charges a light cavalry unit and the light cavalry evades, the charging unit cannot make a Breakthrough Charge.”


    Reaction of an artillery unit charged by cavalry or infantry

    1. Fleeing with guns

    P66 Add a new paragraph at end of section 3. Fleeing with guns.“If the DT is not passed, the combat is settled without the attacking unit receiving any fire and without having to pass an Elan Test.”


    Infantry that fail an Elan test

    P68 paragraph 6, If a unit is defeated in a Firefight , it must retreat a complete move directly away from the enemy unit. (insert) “If an artillery battery was the target of the charge, is involved in a firefight and loses, it limbers and then retreats.”


    Cavalry that fail an Elan test

    P68 In the section that refers to ‘the charging unit’ replace with ‘the charged unit’.


    Flank Charges and morale tests

    P71The diagram on the bottom right is incorrect. The British line infantry unit should have formed column before moving, as explained on page 18.


    Breakthrough cavalry charge

    P72 If a cavalry unit charges … 6” in a straight line against the first enemy unit it meets.  (insert) When cavalry make a breakthrough charge, determine if the charging unit is to the flank or rear of the second target unit from the position where it contacts the first unit it charged.

    Hi there

    It will probably help if the 2nd ed team can tell us how they intend to process the ideas / clarification of their rules.

    For example will they produce a draft of the copy for us to trial and comment on, will they put suggestions into a yes / maybe, needs testing / no,  basket so we know when to stop flogging the dead horse. It will help us know how we can best use our time to help.
