Challenges in Multi-Unit Combats (40k)

TJ, to answer your question from as I was running out the door the other night, challenges happen at the start of the fight sub-phase, after all units have charged into combat. So characters from any of the units involved can issue or respond to a challenge, not just the first unit to charge in. The challenge rules specifically note this, as well as that only one challenge may be held per combat.

Would be an interesting ability to see a model that had the ability to start a second challenge in a combat (assuming I'm correct that there aren't any already). E.g., so you could go after the Captain plus his powerfist-wielding Sergeant.
