Greetings!

So I have a question. In the little rule book, on page 20 it indicates that a unit must be able to see the target in order to charge. Okay. So one or two models are able to see the unit but the rest are hiding behind something. So they can charge. Perfect.

Then it says, resolve Overwatch. On page 21 it says all rules of line of are in effect. Since you can only shoot things you can see, then only the one or two models that can see the charge target can be shot. Perfect. No worries.

Now. Let's say those "visible" models are killed. The charge is still declared and there's nothing that I can see that indicates the charge is invalidated if (after overwatch) the models that has LOS are dead.

So. Assuming that my charge range roll is adequate, I can still charge even though the remaining models can't see the charge target.

Right?

Without a rule book handy I would agree as you satisfied the LOS requirement up front

Yes. LoS is only required when you declare charges. As long as you meet that requirement at that time, you can charge them.

It's actually a good tactic to limit the damage that overwatch can inflict. Have a unit that only has LOS to the target with one model. Declare charge, overwatch takes places but can only kill the model in LOS, then move the rest of the unit in.

Team0Comp (Frontline Gaming) have a series of videos on Youtube called Tips, tricks and dirty tactics. On one of those videos they demonstrate examples of how to do just this in games. They are still making more of these videos so have a look and expect more of these from them in future.

Funny you should mention it. It was their video about using flat out movement to block LOS that inspired this idea for assault rather than shooting.
