LOL you guys all must misunderstand me ... or I could just be the about the worst general ever
I love theory-hammering it out ... and on paper caracole seems good ...but on table ... and granted I mainly had smaller western squadrons ... of what ...3 -4 bases? It always seems like Im moving line abreast for more efficiency .... I never had to caracole ... again ... in practice ... it seems I rarely found a moment to do it.
*hands in surrender* I concede ... Caracole is the coolest thing since sliced bread ...
I wasn't talking about those IN buildings. That is just crushing into them and hoping for the best (if you actually need to do that).
I have had a couple of games where infantry were just behind fences and if I remember correctly that isn't an armor of 6 (but 4, which sounds better - or is my memory really that bad?).
Or if possible just shoot the buggers out ... which is harder for the western armies it seems
That is what you try to do with a caracole.
Why else do that?
Or did you mean shooting the buggers out with artillery?
