I think Black Powder is a game where you are supposed to sort these things out yourselves and play in the way that suits you best.We were told that units cannot rally but we think they can, so we let them rally.
Big Al said:You see, within the rules you can "Rally" by issuing a Rally order.
But others think not. So indeed we play it the way that suits us - which was my point and suggestion.
Yes Dave, you're partially right about "potentially" meaning friends within 6 inches. The units must be in a position where they could support. In other words, not those units that are ahead of the losing unit, nor those that are already in combat. The main thing that this is intended to cover is those units that don't count as support because another unit is already supporting from that position. For example, your unit has two friendly units on its right flank and within 6 inches. The fighting unit will only get +1 for support on that flank because only one unit can support a flank. However, when the unit loses, both of the units on the right flank must take a break test.
