Is it true that only 1 challenge may be fought in the combat? Like ,I kill a the unit champ (turn1) in a challenge ,can I then issue another challenge (turn2 ) in the same unit in the same combat? There's a beardy dwarf player who says that "only 1 challenge per combat" means 1 challenge may be issued per combat (turn1 challenge made and fought, turn 2 no more challenges) . How do I prove that he is wrong? I really need help on this one..
- If you issue a challenge, that challenge goes on (every turn) until one of the models is dead.
- Only one challenge may be active at any one time in any one combat (including combats involving multiple units).
- Once one challengers is dead, then the current combat phase ends as normal.
- Next combat phase, new challenges may be issued and accepted.
Hope thats ok as a description.
Dwarf Unit: 19 dwarves + Hero
Empire Unit: 18 spearmen + champion + hero:
Turn 3 (Dwarves): Dwarf player doesn't issue challenge. Empire player does, with his Hero. 1 wounds scored by each. Combat resolution is done and the units remain in combat.
Turn 3 (Empire): The previous challenge continues. Dwarf hero kills empire hero. ComRes resolves, again both units remain in combat.
Turn 4 (Dwarf): Dwarf Player issues challenge. EMpire player may accept with Champion, or decline.
Also one thing to bear in mind (slightly off topic but a useful point often missed). If an opponant declines a challenge, YOU choose which of THEIR models retire to the back of their unit.
Just to add a page to what phoenix said, page 77 second column second paragragh says once a challenge is underway no further challenges may be issued in that combat until one character is slain or flees from combat.
That would be the prove you need.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
