We have been playing it as if you have more ranks of 5 or more models then you get a +1 to combat resolution up to a max of +3.

However in reading it again, it mentions behind the "fighting rank"

So, simple example.

Let say I have 20 VC skeletons, 4 ranks of 5. I'm fighting a monster of some kind (no ranks).

We both somehow manage to do no wounds. Lets say they charged.

Combat resolution. The monster gets 1 for charging. The Skeletons would get how many for the Extra Ranks rule?

The way our groups has been playing it would be +3 (for the 4 more full ranks, capped at +3). But in reading this, would it be +2 instead as the first 2 ranks were fighting?

Thanks for your help!

You never get the front rank as a rank bonus, what it is saying is that every rank after the first grants a +1 rank bonus to a cap of 3.

Fighting rank pretty much means the front rank.

Azzebo has it right. The only thing you ever count the front rank for is Steadfast, so if a unit has 5 models they count as 1 ranks, where a monster fighting them (or a skirmish or fast cavalry unit) counts as 0 ranks. Those 5 models would be Steadfast.
