hey guys... just wondering about the lance formation after the charge. Say on the 2nd turn of CC, do all the knights on the sides still get their attacks? or is it only the knighs in base to base.. it doesn't really clarify what happens in later CC turns if we don't break the enemy unit with the first charge. And if they do still attack how do you work flankers that hit your knights on the side while in CC to the front? ..Yeah i'm a newb. Thanks:yes:
No, back ones don't still get to attack. Also, in the first round if you were charged as opposed to you charging them you don't get lance bonus either.
As for flanking, work it out just like you do any other block unit. Models in BTB can attack, you don't get 'lance effects' to the side though, ever.
This makes the lance formation extremely weak if it gets charged, or fails to break the unit it charged in the first round as you are reduced to a measely 3 knights fighting. Brets don't stand up in long combats.
wow, i had no clue. That's dangerous. I was wondering why it was such a big deal to get the charge..... other than the +2 S. Hmm that changes everything about my list... oh well.. back to the drawing board. Thanks for the info.
