The defender gets to muster on his fourth move phase. You must realise that during a "turn", the sequence of phases is a) Defender moves b) Defender strikes c) Attacker strikes back d) Attacker moves e) Attacker strikes f) Defender strikes back.

Attacker only. On the attacker's move phase that follows the first defender casualty, an Angel (or Archangel) may be summoned from another legion of the attacker's --as long as the attacking legion has less than seven members at that point.

Response to Nigel's question:

The defender is always the legion that was already in the hex (on the Masterboard) when the other legion entered it--it is the original defender. Only the defender gets to muster a reinforcement, presumably because they're already established in the hex, and can better call on the creatures in that land to help them. This means that the only time during a battle that a reinforcement can be mustered is at the beginning of the 4th battle turn (the defender's half of the battle turn). Of course, if no muster was made during the battle, an eligible defender has an opportunity to muster afterward, if they have won. The attacker is always the legion that just moved into the hex--the original attacker. Only the attacker can summon an angel.

Therefore, one side (the original defender) might be able to muster a reinforcement, while the other side (the original attacker) might be able to summon an angel. No side is eligible to do both in the same battle. The defender's ability to muster a reinforcement introduces a strategic consideration; it can make an attack more risky, since a weak attack could conceivable strengthen the defending army, if their losses are light and they muster a strong reinforcement.

Hope this helps.

You must have been stuck in the upper ring rolling the most improbable string of 4's.
