[Solved] How do directives impact movement?
The individual Formation’s Directives determine the amount of movement that any given formation can make and which MUST be toward the Force Objective. Just checking that I have got this right ? My summary of that is as follows:
a. Attack – all units, and the formation as a whole, MUST make a full move toward the Force objective only slowing for terrain.
b. Movement – all units, and the formation as a whole, MUST make a full move toward the Force objective only slowing for terrain.
c. Defend – individual units within the formation only make minimal movement keeping the Formation as a whole in more or less the same location as it started.
d. Reserve – all units and the whole Formation do not move at all.
e. Support – the individual units and the formation as a whole, mirror/shadow the movement of the Formation they are supporting but can move any distant up to and including full movement.

b. The Formation may choose to avoid bad terrain to move towards the Force objective.
d. Actually treated the same as defend [D].
e. Yes. Easiest way to think of it is a supporting Formation can’t be ahead of the Formation it supports.
