PostSubject: Strike first rules   Fri Jun 08 2018, 12:53

Ok, so I thought I understood always strike first rules (like slaanesh has). I thought that even if a unit with the rule is charged they still fight first.

But I recently saw a discussion that seemed to say that the charging player picks one unit that charged, they fight. Then the strike first player, then charger etc.

Can someone lay this out in a clear idiot proof way for me?

Most such rules do say that you always strike first unless the opponent charged that turn, in which case you alternate activating units between those that charged and those with always strike first starting with the player who charged.

However, I believe there are a few relics out there (I think Dark Angels have one at least) that say they always strike first even if the opponent charges.

In short, read the rules for any specific unit, it tells you how it works on their datasheets quite clearly.

Basically treat charging units as having the strike first ability. By the same token, treat strike first units as always having charged.

The player whose turn it is gets to nominate the first unit to fight in each phase, so the controlling player’s charging unit would get to fight before anyone else, but then by standard assault rules it’s the other player’s turn to nominate a unit to fight.

So strike first still is nice vs chargers because if you get charged by multiple units, they effectively get to use the counter-assault stratagem for free.
