Hi,

maybe a stupid question:

Overwatch is resolved when declaring a charge. It uses all the normal rules for shooting except the to hit roll. We have learned from the designers notes that if a model cannot see the charging unit, it will not be able to fire Overwatch.

Does that mean that you can't overwatch with a flamer (8'') if the charging unit starts more than 8'' away, for example after deep strike?

thanks folks

From the same question in the developers notes:

40K Developers wrote:
Note however that the unit being charged still obeys the normal rules for targeting when it fires Overwatch

From Choose Targets section of the shooting rules:

Quote :
In order to target an enemy unit, a model from that unit must be within the Range of the weapon being used

Thank you

yes typical flamers automiss overwatch if you start your charge more than 8" away. In addition, since you can now declare charges on units without being able to draw LOS to them, ALL weapons will automiss overwatch if you charge around a corner.

Wonderful, thank you.
It is completely clear. Don't know why I had doubts about it.

Question: Overwatch and Flamer: Do I still have auto-hit or do I need 6+ (if they start to attack me within 8" and I can see them)?

As far as I know there's nothing that says they don't autohit.
