Let's say a unit of TK chariot charges a block of infantry and did 7 impact hits. It results in 5 wounds and 5 failed armour saves.

a) Do the chariot crew get to attack?

b) Is the front rank consider wiped out?

c) Is the unit champion dead?

d) Can the defending infantry block hit back?

Thanks in advance

A) yes
B) Yes, assuming it was =<6 wide (see C)
C) No, impact hits are distributed as shooting and cannot hit champions/ characters if there are 5 or more [other] rank and file.
D) With the champion, assuming he survives the attacks of the crew/steeds.

The chariot crew and steeds all get to attack.

You would not be able to kill the champion unless a) sufficient damage was caused to wipe out the entire unit or b) the champion was specifically targeted for damage.

Around here, at least, we've never allocated impact hits to champion models. It's just never been conceived as an option.

If the champion survives the charge then he will be able to fight back.

Edit: And it *is* distributed as shooting. Worth remembering next time I charge a chariot into a warmachine.
