    ICs fighting a challenge after a unit is destroyed

    Unit A and Unit B are allies. Unit A includes Hero A. Unit C is the Enemy, which includes Hero C.
    Heroes A & C are independent characters who have joined their respective units in a previous turn.

    A & B charge C and Hero C issues a challenge. Hero A answers the call and they start to slug it out.

    Several close combat phases later, Hero A and Hero C are still slugging it out. In the meantime, the regular rank and file from Unit A and Unit B finally manage to kill the last of Unit C (Except Hero C, who is an IC fighting a challenge)

    What happens now? Is Unit B no longer engaged in combat? Is Unit A stuck in place with Hero A, but unable to do anything? Does Hero C take a panic test because a unit within 6" was destroyed in CC (no, because he is in CC as well, right)? Does the challenge end or do the two heroes fight on, no matter what, until one falls?

    My interpretation is that Unit B, which is not part of the challenge, may now redress the ranks and move in their next movement phase. Unit A stays where it is, unmoving, and unable to affect the fight between the two heroes. And the two heroes keep fighting until one falls.

    Can someone confirm this for me?

    I think you have it right.
    At least, that is how I would do it.

    But the unit A will still add rank bonus and banner to the Combat result wouldn't they?

    I think you're right too. Unit B is no longer in combat (since they have wiped out their opponents and aren't in base contact with Hero C, because he's in a challenge with Hero A), but Unit A must stick around to support their Hero, and they would indeed add ranks, banner and outnumbering to the final combat resolution. Of course, if Hero C killed Hero A, he would no longer be in a challenge and Unit A would then be free to administer a kicking to Hero C.
