Hi there,


does a free strike trigger side step?

it says it triggers on a initial or special attack.

Free strikes are neither Initial nor Special Attacks so no.

how sure are you?

Doesnt initial refer to the amount of standard attacks you have on profile.

100% sure.

Initial attack are the base number of attacks you get with your combat action on your turn. Most models get one, models with two weapons (such as Molik Karn) get two initial attacks.

Sidestep also triggers on special attacks, which you usually get by forfeiting your initial attacks, ie. Molik's Combo-Strike.
