If you are already in combat, you can´t go into shieldwall, I think. To busy trying not to get speared...

I have to say it wouldn't have even occurred to me to ask the question!

No, no trying to form a shieldwall while actually fighting.

Cheers,
Jim

And yet...

A noble still has a command radius even when locked in combat. So he should be able to do all the things a noble normally can do. If he can rally his men during combat (take away shock) why shouldn't he be able to order a defensive formation?

He could order a defensive formation. Actually lining up and linking shields whilst some hairy barbarians are trying to bash their heads in is something else...Not a hope!

I don't think he can even thakaway shock in combat ...

In combat your only option is winning or dieing ....

Only if you have a disengage card you can move away from the enemy ...

Cheers Glenn,

Obviously he can. There is even an unsuited 'rally' card in the deck that can be played anytime. On page 48 is clearly stated that a Noble can use his Command Initiative to rally any groups in the fight.

Hi Willie,

That's not quite right. P.48 actually says he can rally any groups in the fight he can influence. P.34 actually spells it out - if he is personally involved in the fight, then he can only rally the single group he is with. If he isn't personally involved in the fight then he can rally any groups in the formation he is with.

Cheers,
Jim
