Does Epic Charge do anything other than add a +2 to Fight on a successful charge?
Some people seem to play that when an Epic action is declared it is immediately resolved. However, where Heroic Charge specifically says that the formation charges before other models, all Epic Charge says is that if it is declared before they charge, they get +2 Fight.
So essentially, if the Epic Charge is declared before the formation would normally charge, then it doesn't affect priority at all.
If, however, the charge is resolved immediately after the Epic Charge is declared, then it could be declared any time during the phase, potentially interupting normal charges.
If all it does is add a +2 fight, then it's just, at most, a couple of extra attacking dice. It's a very weak Epic Strike for the same cost in Might. It's completely redundant on figures like Eorl the Young. Regardless of your view of ES, Epic Charge could affect duels because it is always declared before the Fight phase, but it specifically says it increases the formation's fight value. Does that affect the hero as well, as long as he is part of the formation? Duels only mention not getting bonuses from wargear.
I'm particularly curious in regards to Theoden's usefulness, where he has Touched by Destiny.
Also, he shares his 5 Fight with his whole Formation (not just company) so should I assume they are cumulative? (Fight of 7 after Epic Charge). Otherwise it further weakens Epic charge, only increasing most of his normal formation's fight by 1 (Riders, Royals) and some not at all (Oathsworn).
