Both legions are killed in the assault completely, meaning both players put their heroes in their discard pile.
It's now player 2's turn, he claims 1/3 of his discard pile, places his hero and a few other cards. Can he then attack player 1 for a 'free' 1 PP? Player 1 doesn't have anything on the table but he can be legally attacked since he has only just finished his turn and hasn't yet been attacked. I would assume if yes then this would just be 1 PP for the attacker?
In hindsight, this probably is allowed since 1 PP is a pretty lame turn
Well you get one action for every card you pull out of the discard piles, and playing your hero is a free action, so you kind of have one 'free' action left over once you have played every card you can.

I would say 'no' you can't...if there's nothing there to attack what are you gaining a PP for? Looking for a battle! Makes way more sense to me to say you have to wait unitl there are units that can be attacked.
