My daughter and I was playing the other day and the question came up. We are both playing HE and after the first round of combat who gets to strike first. I understand that who ever gets the charge off gets to strike first. I think it is highest int but I want to make sure.
Not even chargers go first.
ASF versus ASF is in initiative order only, if both units have equal initiative then you roll off, it makes playing other HE armies a bit of a gamble. It is also one of the best things about Phoenix Gaurd their having I6 makes them fantastic against other ASF troops.
Just to add to the above post if it is the second round of a combat and the units I is the same then the winner of the previous round will strike first. If it was drawn then it goes in I order.If thats the same u dice off.
Therefore I am to assume that charging has no effect it is only int.
Thanks everyone for your inputs. I believe I know the answer to my question. You guys have all helped out a whole bunch. Yes I understand that you still get the pluses for charging with the spears. I sometimes forget about that as the HE spearman really do not charge much. I mean you are giving up a rank of attacks. Now I am not saying that there are not circumstance which they should charge, help out a combat, flank or a rear charge or when you no longer have three ranks.
