Close combat procedure
After a player has made all of their assault moves and charges then, if there are opposing detachments that have units in base-to-base contact with each other, you must resolve close combat between them.
|The first player completes all of their assault moves and charges, and resolves all close combats (and firefights) that they trigger. Only then does the second player get to do the same.|
The player who has the Initiative decides the order in which to resolve close combats. [TODO: Consider whether instead the first player should decide the order while they resolve the assaults that they trigger, and then the second player should get to do the same.] To resolve a close combat, use the close combat procedure as follows.
