I have a question about a particular combat scenario and it's going to need a diagram!
This is a scenario which came up in our game last week. My units are blue, I'm in the front and the flank of a single unit of 3 monstrous cavalry (bloodcrushers I believe). My champion from the unit at the bottom is engaged in a challenge with the champion of the Bloodcrushers.
In my last turn of combat the marked bloodcrusher was killed by my flanking unit. As such they are no longer in base contact with the enemy unit (and even if they were they would touch the champion and so couldn't hit the regular troop).
What happens in this scenario? We came up with several options but couldn't agree.
- The flanking unit are released from the combat
- The flanking unit move into base contact with the champion but due to the challenge they cannot strike or be attacked
- The flanking unit moves into contact with the champion however they can only strike against the unit
