I think it would be even more fluffy to allow our raiders (or assault raiders) to disembark after the end of a charge, and allow disembarked units to be disembarked within 1" of any unit the raider charged.

Basically, the raider charges, THEN the unit disembarks and is already in cc.


This would be pretty neat

That actually seems like a great rule, good, a large part of the boost we needed but not something completely over the top.

I like that but it does make our units effectively immune to overwatch, which some may regard as an issue.

Our transports are the most vulnerable to overwatch in the game, with T5 transports that can be brought down with small arms fire. If it were land raiders then I would agree with the immune to overwatch thing, but this is raiders we're talking about here! I have had several die to strength 3.

The vehicles aren't immune to overwatch but the units inside would be.

Unless the vehicle explodes with them inside of course.

True but that's fairly unlikely unless you're charging a heavily damaged transport into a unit with ridiculous amounts of firepower and/or ability to fire overwatch at greater than normal effect, and even then it's a 6 to explode and a 1 to die from it.

They already are, though. It's not very different from charging with the raider to soak overwatch.

Also, it's not like immunity to overwatch is a non-existent concept in this game Smile

Also also, Wyches are incredibly vulnerable to overwatch. 2 flamers and some good/bad rolls can wipe an entire 10 man squad of bloodbrides out before they even reach combat, so a reliable way to get them in would be nice.

I personally don't have an issue with it but I can certainly see some people crying cheese over it.
