The HE have a banner that says that you treat woods as open ground for the purpose of movement. My question is do the trees still block line of sight. We have a guy that has just started playing them that swears he read "somewhere on a forum" that you can have your unit on the other side of some trees(with no line of sight) and still be able to charge an enemy unit on the other side.
To me, from the wording in that sentence, it is for movement only. Otherwise, it would just say" Treat woods as open ground"
Yer theres a WE spell that has the same wording almost; unit treats all terrain as open ground for the purposes of movement (or similar), as well as ethereal units treating terrain as open ground for movement.
This does not allow them to "see through" terrain, it only allows them to move through it.
I may be wrong but I think that WE got FAQ'd, so you could use that as a reference if it's there.
Otherwise, just tell your opponent that just because you can move through the tree, doen't make make the tree invisible!

You still need LoS to charge, you can only get LoS in woods if youare closer than 2" to the edge, and hence can only charge according to the normal rules if you're able to see the enemy. The banner Of Ellyrion allos teh unit to move through the woods as if they were not there - if does not give the unit (probably Dragon Princes?) the ability to charge through said woods, any more than White Lions, Wood Elves or skirmishers can.

The answer is in the statement. For movement purposes only. You woul still require line of sight.
