Not sure if this has been brought up. I'm currently playing as the confederates in a Vicksburg campaign. We're in the final battle of Vicksburg and I'm trying to escape to the north exit hex and gain VPs for exiting. However, I'm only getting VPs when I exit infantry units. I exited 14 artillery pieces this past turn, but didn't get any VPs for them. Are you not supposed to get VPs for artillery units or is it a bug? Anybody know?

Thx

*Unless* the VP value for artillery in this scenario is set at zero this is a bug. The exit hex should score the VP value of the troops exited, period.

I contacted HPS support and like always they were very responsive.

At first they thought it was a bug, but after contacting the game designer (I believe) they said it was not a bug. He purposefully did not assign VPs for the mobile confederate artillery that was left. Since this is a "breakout" scenario then any confederate artillery still left is considered "expendable" therefore the rebs do not get any exit VPs for them, nor do the yanks get any VPs for capturing them.

I also just exited two supply wagons and no VPs were given for them either. Interesting.
