Combined Arms and First Strike

If the passive player counters a combined arms attack with a First Strike type of card and then wipes out the attacking unit, does the active player still roll for the supporting (combined arms) units? I think yes, unless a Flag was rolled.

Any thoughts on this ?

No

"If a defending unit plays a First Strike card against a combined arms attack and either eliminates the attacking infantry or cavalry unit or forces it to retreat, the artillery’s attack dice committed to the combined arms combat are lost because no attacker melee occurs."

The basic principle that we must follow in directing the armies of the Republic is this: that they must feed themselves on war at the expense of the enemy territory. ~Napoleon
