Hi David,

How does conversions treat mixed formations? We had assumed they couldn’t convert to attack as a cavalry formation and therefore weren’t forced to convert to withdraw if still in contact at end of combat. But then the cavalry units remain in contact so now we’re thinking a mixed formation should actually be treated as a cavalry formation?

And, while we’re at it, assuming two formations in contact both reach their withdraw fatigue threshold (or one or both are cavalry), is it correct they both withdraw a half-move away from eachother?

Thanks

Mixed Formations perform Conversions the same as any other Formation. There are different criteria for some Conversions.

Correct, because that Conversion is exclusive to Cavalry Formations.

Correct.

Assuming the Combat Assessment result doesn't allow or require the Cavalry Units to Evade, the Cavalry Units would end up remaining in contact with the enemy.

That is correct, the Conversions are simultaneous.
