From what i see on BRB p61 pursuing units can pivot and move through friendly units who have not yet rolled their own pursuit move when pursuing a fleeing enemy in a multiple combat.
Does this mean you can move through friendly units who have not yet rolled their own pursuit move at all times in a multiple combat?
For example if the unit of goblins had to flee directly away from the smaller unit of spearmen could the smaller spearmen unit still make its pursue move before the larger spearmen unit (therefore pursuing through the friendly unit before it makes it's own pursuit move)?
(note: i realise the goblins MUST flee from the larger unit but lets talk hypothetically)
If a pursuing unit that is forced to pivot and move over a friendly unit in a multiple combat and is unable to clear that friendly unit with its pursuit move what happens?
Crossbowmen pursue and pivot about their centre
Crossbowmen roll double 1 for their pursuit move and are unable to clear the Halberdier unit.
Where do the Crossbowmen go?
Do they stay where they are?
Are they bumped up the extra move they need to be placed an inch in front of the Halberdiers?
