A couple of questions about Empire detachments, or more specifically detachments for Army of Middenland. Do units that are special or rare, like crossbowmen and handgunners, respectively, count towards the maximum allowed special or rare? Case in point, can I take handgunner detachments and it not count towards the 1 rare slot (for armies < 2K)?
Second, can Teutogen Gaurd and Warriors of Ulric be parent units, as greatswords can be for standard Empire?
And finally, if a detachment countercharges a unit that charges the parent unit, who strikes first, the enemy unit or the detachment? Or is it by initiative between those two? Thanks.
edit: ok, I'm a goober, just looked at the army list a little closer, and that answered #2 for me, but it didn't say handgunners couldn't be....so that means they can?

Detachments do not count towards the choice selection. So state troop units (halberdiers, spearmen, swordsmen and HANDGUNNERS) may be be used as detachments and therefore do not take up the rare choice.Originally Posted by The_Black_Hats
Once the attacking unit hits your parent unit, then you charge, you attack first because you charged there unit. And a detachment isn't the parent unit, so detachments attack first.

in the SoC list handgunners/crossbows can't be detachments as their not core selections. other core that can be taken as detachments obviously don't count towards core choice selection.
initive order is dicated by charge order. that simple. the last to charge is the first to attack, and work your way back.
that's the thing about perfection, it can only get worse.
