I'm wondering about quite an unusual resolution of March and Support orders. Let's say I have one footman on land A and one knight and one footman on land B. I assign a support order to the footman on land A and a march order on the knight and footman on land B. I decide to split my forces, and I order the footman from B to move to A (so I got two footmen on A now), and the knight from B to move to some land C that lies next to both A and B. There are enemy forces on C, so a battle ensues. My question is: can the footman I moved to A (on which there is a support order) still support the battle on C even though it came from the march order that started this attack? The total strength of my force will be:
- one supporting footman from A + knight from B = 3 or
- two supporting footmen from A + knight from B = 4?
