Tactica: Allocating Attacks
Allocating attacks is one of those little dilemmas that come up during a game of Warhammer. In my experience, it tends to get forgotten completely, with the default being that attacks are made against the normal member of a target unit.
I don’t pretend to be the world’s leading expert on this subject but I do have some opinions based on what has happened to me so far.
There are two possible goals when allocating attacks
Generally the choice is between weaker troops and tougher troops. The tougher troops could be one or more characters or a second unit in contact of stronger (and harder to kill) models. The question becomes whether you want to risk trying to kill the tough model(s) or to go for the more reliable attacks on a weaker opponent.
