Rules for pikes can be found in the DOW rules: http://us.games-workshop.com/games/warhammer/gaming/dogsofwar/assets/dowrules1.pdf

It refers to page 89 of the warhammer book, but I think that was the old one.

It comes down to:
Fight in 4 ranks, requires two hands.
ASF in the first round of combat, even if charged, but not against units who have ASF themselves.
+1S on the turn they are charged by cavalry, chariots or monsters (only for attacks against this unit)
All these can only be used against enemies fighting to their front.
