When fighting in buildings I understand the rules as you pick out your 10 best fighters on each side and only them fight each other out. No stepping-up would work here.

How does you read the rules?

P. 128 Fighting the Assault / Who can strike?

p. 128 "Note that casualties are taken from the 'back' of the unit as normal. If one side suffers casualties before it fights, extra models are assumed to step up and join the assault party in place of fallen comrades, ..."

I am not certain as to how it works with:
Champions
Characters
Mixed units, such as Skinks with Kroxigors

Thanks T10, I'm a little bit blind sometimes ;)

That is a good question. Can you send in a 10 men with great weapons, wait for them to get killed and then send in a character? Can you replace a dead Kroxigor with three Skinks?

I would suggest that dead models be replaced with non-champion rank-and-file of the same type. As long as you stick with the limit of 10 models fighting on each side things should work out fine.

If the casualties are taken from the back then you still have the same 10 models selected.

If a champion or character dies what do you replace it with? my guess is the same thing that would have replaced it when fighting RnF

Also important to consider that these models would count as in btb and get their full quota of attacks. Chaos Warriors ftw.

Can you issue challenges?

Can 10 Chaos Warriors make all 20 of their attacks on the enemy Hero?

Challenges may be issued.
