Looking at figure 8 on page 19 of the rules light horse B can contact the front or flank of Cavalry X.... nothing strange there but has anyone else thought that the flank contact is too easy? Are we relying on our Generals bird's-eye view instead of the unit Commanders grasp of the situation and automatically presuming he has grasped the opertunity?
I've watched this happen quite often in games and think it does happen too easily and I am reminded of Battle accounts where such opertunities were fortunately exploited so maybe we should introduce some "luck" into the mix if the attacking element is not already partially or fully behind a line prolonging the target elements front edge?
I've read about adding an extra pip to be able to frontally contact Bw elements... how about equally adding an extra pip to contact a flank unless an attacking element starts the bound partially or fully behind a line prolonging the front edge of the target element?
The extra pip could be seen as not only the manoeuvre of the element but also a wheel onto the flank.
