We had our first test game last night using the rules (See the Wargamorium Blog https://thewargamorium.wordpress.com/
) and I am still a little confused by the hand to hand combat sequence
In the Impact phase Side A (Mounted Knights) charged and forced the enemy to flee. Side A was obliged to follow up and then pursue. However in pursuing he had no option but to enter an enemy Zone of Control and had to stop. His impact had been restored so does he fight that enemy unit immediately or in the next combat phase – i.e. in Side B’s next combat phase? The Zone of Control rules (Page 13) says that any enemy unit that enters this zone must stop and engage in combat" This could be interpreted as immediately.
The situation arose in our test game where Side B (also mounted knights) was in a phase 2 ongoing melee with a foot unit and that melee had been adjudicated but with no result. Side A’s pursuing knights then arrived in the adjacent square and wanted to initiate a new melee immediately together with the foot unit as a multiple attack.
Can you tell us please what the situation should be.
p.s. I have another similar problem which I will post later.
