Thanks for the observation and there is a simple solution, one that should have been there from the start – Long thrusting spears can reroll their ‘to hit’ rolls in the opening round of combat against thrusting spears, the same should apply to pikes against both types of spears – as the combat continues, these bonuses are lost because the troops have got much closer (but pike armed get the advantage of more models fighting if they have taken extra ranks) – I will look to add that to the errata

Other comments most welcome – sorry late to the party, the problem with the new forum is it doesn’t seem to show the most recent posts on the main page

Kind Regards
