Re: MAXIMA AND MINIMA

Terry's original question was "Are these two to be treated as the same "troops" for maxima and minima purposes?" which is what I was answering. They do not.

Re: shooting 1 dice per two bases at 2 different BGs

What Phil said but specifically answered on p. 89, 1st column, last sentence of 1st paragraph. Although the relevant part of the sentence in question is talking about Byzantine cavalry, the application still holds true in your example.

Re: Two Ranks Deep?

P. 92 Under Scoring Hits, 2nd column, 1st bullet answers your question Terry for impact. 1st column, same page and section, last bullet answers your question for melee POAs. The charts on pages 90 and 91 answer your questions for dice.

Re: CONVENIENT BASE REMOVAL

I think you could based on p. 116, 2nd column, 3rd sentence in the paragraph under Base Removal as it says "Non-front rank bases must be used if any are available, and can be from any part of the battle group."

Re: CONVENIENT BASE REMOVAL

Based on the wording on p. 116, 1st bullet - you must lose the base nearest to the shooters. If that base happens to be a front rank base, then you can shuffle bases forward to replace it per 2nd column, paragraph directly under 7th bullet same section to maintain contiguity and fill vacated front r...
