Just checking general concensus here.

I have a Tomb Kings skeleton unit. 10 wide, 4 ranks deep, clearly making them a horde. They have spears. When standing still, do they fight with three ranks or four?

Is it...

Front rank
Support rank
spear rank
Horde rank


Front rank
Support rank
Spear/Horde rank

They fight in four ranks. Two ranks normally, spears add another rank, and horde yet another.

And of course the spear only give an additionnal rank when not charging, while the horde bonus has no such restriction.

Spear horde charges : fight in 3 ranks (Front, Support, Horde)
Spear horde charged (or 2nd round) : fight in 4 ranks (Front, Support, Horde, Spears)
