    Combats are fought in a strict striking order, starting with the attacks that have Initiative 10 and then working downwards from the highest to the lowest Initiative. At each Initiative step, all attacks that have the same Initiative strike simultaneously. Under normal circumstances, a model strikes at the Initiative given on its profile. However, some attacks are made at a different Initiative step than the model's own Initiative (such as a Chariots’ Impact Hits, which are Initiative 10). For models with more than one profile (such as a knight and its mount), each part of the model strikes at its own Initiative.
