404 12/9/2019 10:47:00 AM Turn 6 CSA Message Yes, I agree with your victory point calculations. The CSA could withstand either the unfavorable casualty ratio or the Union getting next to Marietta, but not both.

You may notify our esteemed tournament master of your victory. Good luck the rest of the way.

Your are right. Tactical is +0. I forgot to update my board for your leader transfer. Above is the artillery roll. Even and CSA gets a +1. Odd and it is +0.

342 12/4/2019 4:51:00 AM Turn 5 USA Message Tactical ...isn't that a wash - Palmer vs Hardee?
341 12/4/2019 4:37:00 AM Turn 5 USA Message Agree. Proceed.
340 12/4/2019 3:08:00 AM Turn 5 CSA Message That works also. Johnston adds hexes 1514 and 1516. Bate in 1514 and Morgan (only) in 1516 join in.
Modifiers are:
Force 14v10 so +0.
Artillery 7v2 so +1 only if an even is rolled.
Tactics +1
Flank +2
Assault +1
so +5 or +4 depending on the artillery roll before the battle. All the units in the assault will be f1 pending the result.

I will hold off rolling on the art/battle until I hear that you agree with all I have done/calculated.

First, a correction. Armstrong in 1914 should have received a demor-1 in he routed. Place that now. Now the recovery. I am only noting things that change.
1914 - Armstrong f0, Ex, remains Dem-1.

1516 - Cheatham fort; Morgan and Iverson f0.

Bate-A marches from 1413 to 1514. Goes to f1 and the breastwork goes away. No need to roll dice as it is a one hex move and there is no EM roll.

322 12/2/2019 5:10:00 AM Turn 4 USA Message Thank you Michael for the clarifications.

Ok, Johnson F3 advances into 1515.
321 12/2/2019 1:05:00 AM Turn 4 CSA Message Here is the rout route for Armstrong.
1515>1614>1714>1814>1914. End the rout in 1914. Now over to you for your advance decision. Any or all of the 4 units that took place may advance.

Reading my last post, I fear I was not as clear as I could have been. Simply put, all units announced as part of a corp assault gain a fatigue whether the command roll allows them to join the assault or not. Additional units that may be added by Grand Assault only gain a fatigue when the die roll and player choice actually add them to the assault.

Over to you for your advance choice.

320 12/2/2019 12:54:00 AM Turn 4 CSA Message I think your fatigue calculations are off. Before your assault, Geary and Williams are f1, Butterfield is f0, and Johnson is f1 (post 275 and 296).

When you announce a corps assault and the units that will take place, if they pass the command roll, the units gain a fatigue whether the command roll succeeds or not. See step 2 of the Attack Procedure (Assault Action) in the left column of the rulebook on page 12, so Geary and Williams go f2. Then when you add Butterfield and Johnson, they go f1 and f2. All of this is before the battle.

Now the battle result is f, so everyone gains a fatigue. Geary, Williams, and Johnon to f3, Butterfield to f2.

One additional thing. The flanks refused marker is removed when a unit leaves the hex, but since you have not left the hex, it would not be removed yet. A unit that attacks but does not advance does not lose the marker. The marker will be removed if you choose to advance that unit, otherwise it stays.


319 12/1/2019 5:51:00 AM Turn 4 USA Message Takes the losses from Geary instead (n5)...Johnson stays at 10.

Flanks refused comes off

So Johnson f3, all three hooker's corps goes F2. 2 losses from Johnson (n8).

Did I do that all correct? Your rout then I'll decide what to advance.
