View Full Version : Banner of the Under-Empire vs. Always Strikes First?

12-07-2011, 04:35
My unit of Stormvermin are carrying a Banner of the Under-Empire and attacking a unit of Swordmasters. Which happen first, the Banner's hits or the ASF attacks?

Banner: All units in base contact with the unit bearing this banner suffer 2D6 S2 automatic hits at the start of every Close Combat phase.

Always Strikes First: Models with this special rule always strike first in close combat regardless of Initiative.

The banner-it would be like impact hits.

The phase begins before you decide which combat the resolve.
So the banner is always always before ASF.

The more always the better.

Despite my hate to everything that has to do with skavens.....the banner goes first.

Thanks for the help, guys. I appreciate it.

I'm doing whatever I can to weaken my buddy's Swordmasters before they get to hit. Using a ratling gun and this Banner seems to take out a rank and change.
