Game Notes
Under the new wargame rule amendment both the corps commander, and each brigade, roll for command points.  
Each brigade rolls one average dice, with minus one for C class and each casualty.   A brigade with a high dice roll (6th Spanish brigade) who are also more than 16” from the nearest enemy can take three moves.   A low dice roll (8th Spanish brigade) can only move once.
The corps commander will normally use his CP to issue general orders to his brigades.   However he may join a brigade and use his own CP to make the brigade move, change formation or fire.  This is particularly useful if the brigade has no CP of its own.
