Does the Blessing of the lady allow the enemy to choose if they go first or second in the first turn? Or does that mean they get two turns before the Bretonnian player, since the entirety of Turn 1 is the enemy doing his thing?

If they choose to go first, they get the first turn. If they choose to go second, the Bretonnians get the first turn.

Player turn. It's just like the opposing player wins the roll to decide which go first.

A game turn is complete after both armies/players/etc have completed their part of that turn. Another way....a turn has two halfs/parts. To complete a turn both players get to do their thing, one first then the other.

A "Turn" is how long it takes for a player to complete all of his phases (compulsory, movement, shooting magic, close combat). When both players have done this, a "Game turn" has been completed.


As far as Bretonnians are concerned, the start of the game is played as follows:

1. Both players deploy their armies

2. The Bretonnian player declares whether or not they are choosing to pray or not.

3. If the Bretonnian player prays, the opponent can choose whether to go first or second.

4. If the Bretonnians do not pray, you roll for first turn as per usual.


The opponent does not get an "extra free" turn because the Bretonnians pray, they just get to decide whether to go first or second.
