Good evening,

First I want to set up the scenario:

Take a unit of 20 Orcs. 4 Ranks that are 5 models wide each.

OOOOO
OOOOO
OOOOO
OOOOO

This give you +3 for combat resolution due to having 3 complete ranks of 5 behind the first rank. This we all know

Now take that unit of 20 down to a unit of 18 and stick a Big Boss ona Boar in the front row. He overlaps into the second rank:

OOOOO
OOOOO
OOOOB
OOOOB

What rank bonus does this unit get?

There are those that argue that you still get +3. And there are those who say that you get +2.

Your thoughts please....
