Ok so 1st off are you able to do so on your 1st trun?
Also lets say you have vanguard and then i go 1st and move everything up and what not are you able to charge me when it comes to your turn? or do you have to wait till turn 2? If someone could help me out with this it would be most helpful
You can charge on turn 1 assuming the units you are charging with have not made a vanguard move. It doesn't say anywhere in the BRB that you cannot, except for vanguards and scouts.
That means Sir Isaac Newton is the deadliest-son-of-a-bitch in space!
this is going to sound like a stupid question i'm kind of new to this what's BRB mean?
BRB = Basic Rule Book.
And a vanguard unit can charge on your first turn if you go second. A non vanguard unit can charge first turn though it is usually unlikely that you are within range.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
Big Red Book or Big Rule Book. It's just a reference to the core rules.
Also, Lasso's answer is half right. Check out page 79 of the core book:
"Units that have made a Vanguard move cannot declare a charge in the first turn if their army goes first."
So, if you go first, your Vanguards can't charge on Turn1. If you decide to go second though, you can charge after your vanguard. This was done to give your opponent time to react to your Vanguard models being that close to his lines.
Remember that although you may declare a charge on your first turn (except for the Vangaurd rules above), you are not allowed to declare an "impossible charge" (pg16). Usually your maximum charge range is 12+M, measured from the closest point of the declaring unit to the closest point of the defending unit. If there is any intervening or any intervening units, you'll have to measure around them.
This makes first turn charges incredibly rare. Again, this was done to keep people from charging across the board before their opponent could make any kind of defensive moves.
Oh alright i think i get it now thank you very much
