Hi All.

Wondering if any of you could clear this up for me. I have checked rule book and forum.

Fleeing Orcs = OOOOO (facing North)
Goblins = GGGGGG (facing South)
Chariots = CCCCC (facing North)

Ignore the dots please.

....GGGGG
....GGGGG

........OOOOO
........OOOOO

CCCCCCC
CCCCCCC

Orcs are fleeing north. chariots declare charge on goblins, however, they will hit the fleeing orcs on the way to the goblins.

is this a legal charge to declare?

if so:

do the orcs flee 2d6 inches or are they wiped out when chariots hit them.

Do the chariots continue their charge into the goblins after the orcs flee or get wiped?

hope this makes sense.

Thanks

No this isn't a legal charge(based on diagram).

You first would declare a charge against the orcs.
Next, Orcs declare flee as their reaction.
Now, roll flee distance and move orcs.
Now, most likely redirect your chariots charge into goblins.
Continue on with charge declarations and reactions.

Does this mean that you can wait to see how far the orcs flee before deciding whether to re-direct? Top of P18 seems to indicate choice of redirect must be made after flee reaction not dice roll.

Am I missing something?

If the unit flees as a charge reaction, it flees immediately. Resolve it all: flight distance, move the unit, resolve any other leadership/terrain effects, everything. Then you can choose to charge anyway, or re-direct.

It is an illegal charge however you can get around it by declaring the charge against the Orcs (who have to flee) and then redirect against the Goblins.
