Okay, scenario time
A unit of Ork Stormboyz goes zoomin across da table with the intention of shooting up an Imperial Guard Command Squad and then assaulting into them and duffin dem up reel good!
Now da Meks musta put some extra shootyness into my Sluggas because we gunned 'em down dead!
Unfortunatley the letter of the law states you can only assault the unit that you shoot at so now da humies is dead we're stuck out in da middle of nowhere so the dead humies mates all turned round and shot us dead too!
Could I have assaulted into a fresh unit now that the old target was dead? Or were da boyz stoopid for shootin da humies and sud hav saved our dakka for gretchin targit practice?
Note: Forgive da *ahem* THE Orkisms in dis *ahem* THIS post but I'm still on a high from the game. :w00t:
I'm sorry, but your boyz spent too much time Dakka'ing dead humies. They missed the chance to assault .
BgB page 36. Under shooting and Assaulting.
Atleast you know that the command squad ain't twitching... thats got to mean something!

You have got to see it like this: in the heat of battle you are charging at the "humies". While you're charging for 'em you fire of shots, so you're fixated on the target and are less aware of there surroundings. Now, that the enemy is that they will need a couple of seconds to reajust (and miss the assault phase).
BTW Orky highs are alowed
Weel boss, it went like dis see.
We was runnin and a shootin likes we always do and the we see da boss humies ova der, we could tell day was da boss one cause day was so clean, see?. So we runns ova and shooots likes we neva shoots befor!
We killed all da humies wif just, like a few shots! We was amazed cus even Kuldga"No eyes", hit and he cant hit a squggoth at too paces!
Anyways, we waz so shocked at dat we just stood der lokkin at each udda and well the humies got dat drop on us and shone all dem pruddy lightguns at us and you know da rests!
Sorry, as said above - you cannot charge a different unit to what you shot at. Sucks sometimes but hurts the enemy just as much as it hurts you.
Tem other boyos gut it dead right! We boyz get a luttl diztrakkted sum timez und wez stomp all 'em umies before wez hav runned up to em!
Saying it "normally" (we all know it's wrong!), if you shoot at a target then you can only assault the same target. Target dead = no assault.
