Hi all Smile!Just started playing the game and i'm loving it ^^

But i have a simple question...

When a warlord (or a single model) is charging a unit how the counter attacks works?Only the model receving the attack may counter it?So only one model?Or all the models in melee range can possible counter attack?

Apologize for my bad english Sad

Hi Vargbrodern,
I would say that every unit model in melee range can counter attack.

No problem, just ask if there is something.
Until then, have fun with this wonderful game!

All models within their melee range may counter-attack but only of those units/models, which were also attacked. So, if you are in melee range of two different units and attack only 1, only this unit may counter-attack.

If the warlord attacks models in a single unit, then any model of that unit in melee range can make a counter-attack.

Normally Players do not put their warlord in MEL range of more than two unit models (unless they are very confident). This means very few unit models can usually Counter attack a character or warlord.

that often gives the defender (with the unit) a serious problem, whether to counter-attack with 1-2 models (and waste the ACT because so many other models of the unit are out of range), or save the ACT and allow a few unit models to be massacred.

That's one of the fundamental mechanisms of the game, and simulates the flexibility of an individual compared to that of a group.

it's way harder when you attack a unit of hoplites with their 2" melee range and the possibility to fight through their own models Wink

counterattacks from hoplites are very tough Wink

Yes, I agree, 2-inch melee range is great for counter-attacks.

Well Citizen Hoplites are full-time farmers with a little bit of combat training and most a lot of combat experience, so their they are not supposed to be ass Kickers.

Wave-2 will include Sacred Band Hoplites - elite Hoplites with excellent stats and skills, so like the Spartan 300 etc.

I'd say the only good Mortan is a dead Mortan but they're probably the worst kind! Pendragon Hywel ap Morgan before the battle of the Silver Forest...
