i have a quick (and easy?) rules question
if my opponent declares a charge against me, and i choose to flee as a charge reaction,
will the opponent pursue as normal from where the charge would have ended? or will he make his charge move? or move his total charge move (maybe into my fleeing units?
hopefully you understood what i meant
on forehand - thanks!
Rulebook, Page 22.
Assuming that your opponent cannot reach You, after You've fled with your unit as a charge reaction, he/she will have to make a normal move, following the rules from having failed a charge.
question based on this.
you charge unit a) they flee, their flee takes them beyond your charge move. but in the process they fled through unit b) which stayed put. now unit b) is outside of my regular move, but within charge range, do i then charge unit b) or mill about with regular move.
eg with numbers
Skeleton unit charges Night goblins, goblins in range (say their at 6") they fail fear test and flee through another unit of Night goblins (standing at say 8" (max of charge range) ) they pass panic. now would they charge into the 2nd unit or would they stop at 4"?

If unit b) is both within charge range and along the charge path you are allowed to redirect the charge to b). But he doesn't have to.
In your example the skeletons could charge into the second unit if you wished to.

But the second unit would get a charge reaction as well, and could choose to flee. So you could end up with a failed charge anyway.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
Goblins outnumbered by something? Clearly there's some kind of fundamental error here...
There's a fundamental misunderstanding in the OP that's important. Chasing a unit that fled from your charge is not a 'Pursuit' in any way shape or form. This has implications for assorted other special rules. You are still making a charge move under all the normal rules for doing so, the target has just changed their position.
