Multiple close combats

Several close combats may need to be fought in the same Assault phase if a number of different detachments enter close combat with enemy detachments. In an ideal world these would each only involve one detachment per side, but things being what they are it’s inevitable that units from several detachments will end up fighting each other. Where two or more detachments are in contact with one or more enemy detachments, resolve the fight as a single large combat.
