Default Charge of the Rough Riders

A question just arose in some discussions I was having with an IG-player. Does the Rough Riders (armed with Hunting Lances) get +1 attack when charging? Say 10 S5 I5 attacks from a squad of 5?

I feel they should, but the rules say the hunting lance is a one shot weapon. I would appreciate if anyone could help out with this.

Yes, they get the +1 attack when charging, they don't, however, get the attack for having a second close combat weapon.

Sometimes, it's easier if you read things out loud. I know this sounds random, but go to your codex, to the rough rider section, and read the hUnting Lances section out loud. Sometimes, it helps you understand when you read it out loud.

Thanks for sorting that, AC.

I think that pretty much wraps up this topic. If there's anything else you feel needs adding/asking, PM me.
