Quick review for Hunting Lance

Postby -Sgt Dirty Dozen » Wed Aug 02, 2006 9:08 pm

Happily, my RoughRiders have never been charged to date.

But I am a little concerned should RRs w/Lances get charged:

It is clear that the RRs are compelled to use their Lances if they are charged (and if it is their first CC of the game).

It is also clear that the +2 Init and +2 Str do not apply if a Lance-Bearing RR is charged.

But if the RR is charged, and his lance has not yet been used, does the lance still ignore armor saves? It seems to read this way. It seems consistent with the fluff that the tip would explode upon first use, regardless if charging.

A literal reading says that RR's always use the lance in the first close combat, no choice, (and not just the first round, but the whole close combat) and that it ignores armor saves regardless of who charged.
