    Initiative, powerfists, and cover.

    I apologize for asking this question here, because it is one that could be answered by reference to the rulebook... but I am still waiting for the paperback (non $100) rulebook to come out in this country.

    Now that the fourth edition rules are out, isn't there something about defending models in cover automatically striking at initiative 10 instead of first? And also something about powerfists striking at initiative 1 instead of last? So if you are assaulting a guy with a powerfist in cover, what happens?

    Powerfists always strike last no matter what.

    edit: sorry let me reword that, powerfists always strike at initiative 1 no matter what.

    Here you go:

    Hope that solves everything for you.

    btw, how much does Battle for Macragge cost where you are? it comes with a pocket-sized, and practically complete rulebook (just misses the special scenarios at the end)
