First of all thanks for all the great help all of you have been providing,
Another issue that came up last night was:
Dryads with Branchwraith charged Pheonix Guard with 2 Mages in them.
The Branchwraith issued a challenge, and one of the mages refused the challenge, so I take him to the back rank and replace him with a PG.
So does the new PG coming to the front rank get to attack or not?
We always play it as no. A kind of punishment for refusing the challenge. Also, just a side note, a challenge is never declined by a character. It is declined in general and the person that issues the challenge gets to decide who goes to the back, not that it really matters in this case.
When you issue a challenge you state which one of your characters will is issueing the challenge, then if your opponent accepts he says this guy will fight in the challenge, if he refuses you tell him which character to send to the back.
In this case he refused, so you could send either mage, or the unit champion to the back, if the unit has one, and a normal rank and file soldier comes to take his place. So if he only has the two mages in the unit, it isn't wise to challenge, since he will send one to the back, and he will be fine, and a rank and file guy will fight in his place who is much better. If he has a unit champ send him to the back so he looses one strength 4 attack. If he only has two mages just attack the mages with whoever is touching them, this will give you easier combat rez since mages more often then not do not have any armour or save, so you hit and wound and it's done.
