But there is no first turn, because winning initiative during the movement
phase means you'll probably lose it in the shooting phase, where it makes
all the difference really. Sure, there is a lot of tactical advantage of
choosing when to move, but getting the first shot with a fresh detachment
helps out in the beginning of a game. Plus the advantage would only go for
the beginning of the game, unlike WH40K where it is more turn based and less
real time. (relatively Epic is more flowing in their use of turns)
