If a unit with randomly-determined compulsory movement would 'run over' another unit during their movement, are they counted as charging that unit?

If it is an enemy unit, yes. Sometimes the same is true for friendly units but the randomly-moving unit will have specific rules for this.

Hi

Usually, this is the case as explained, but...

Not necessarily, as not all models are units and not all units charge: Fanatics come to my mind immediately.

Yes they are, as long as its an enemy of course

You will need to check each instance wether the compelled unit will engage the target or not. If making contact results in the unit striking blows then it will usually count as charging.

What T10 says. It's not a general rule but in almost all cases the enemy is attacked or bothered by compulsory movers. One major exception, of course, is fleeing units moving under compulsion.


In 5e, Some Compulsory movers would also attack their own units: Spawn, Snotling Pump Wagons and run-away chariots and maybe some others. Now THAT was fun!!!!

Fanatics still do.
