It’s always good to reread your rules Book, after you have a little bit of experience.
A friend of mine found this little gem:
The ordered unit removes all of its Suppression and Reaction markers (see “Reaction Markers” on page 35 and “Suppression Markers” on page 46). It may then have new Unit Leader designated. Lastly, every miniature that is not the Unit Leader may move up to 6”, following normal movement rules.
Let’s analyse this order
- Remove Suppression & Reaction marker
- designate new Leader
- Move every non Leader Miniature 6”
The last sentence is what really makes that order shine
It effectively makes the Regroup order a Blitzkrieg order, leaving the unit Leader behind.
I guess this was not what the authors had in mind, but you can use this order to effectively move your unit 5” towards your enemy.
Why 5”? Because, if you are not within 6” if your leader (which is 5” apart”) you have to regroup in the Unit phase and thus go back until you are in Command Range.
True or did I miss something?
Is Regroup the rich man’s version of Blitzkrieg?
FAQ this one if I am correct, because it seriously breaks the game!
