I've heard varying results on this. I know Incantation of Vengance cannot be used in CC since it is a magic missle. But can the other 3 incantations (Haste, Smiting, Summoning) and "My Will Be Done" be used in CC? I've heard a few no's but mostly I've seen people allowing them to be cast while the priest casting (or prince/king) is in CC.
First of all, you are right about the missle. no.
Second, "My will be done" simply duplicates spell effects, so no worries there.
Third. The smiting and summoning can both be used on units in C.C., the Army Book states this clearly.
A note about the smiting though, it allows only one attack by units in base to base, you do not get all the attacks on the profile.
The urgency cannot be cast on a unit inC.C., obviuosly, as you cannot move unless forced to flee.
As for the priest or king/prince being in C.C. and casting, This is all good, they can cast, as long as the target is within range. There is only a mention of range, not sight.
Perfect answer Palos, except for one nitpicking anal retentive thing. You can technically cast the Urgency incantation while the unit is in combat to move characters around in the unit. Quite a waste of an incantation, but it's usable.
Could it, for example, let a character move to a new position if he was already in combat with another?(I am not trying to hijack your thread Spector, really!)
Its all good Palos, I've gotten the info I needed from this already.
Really the only use for wasting an incantation to do this would be if you'd forgotten to move your character around in the unit during the movement phase to get him engaged, and your opponent was to anal to let you go back and move him.
To complicate matters:
Can a tomb king (or liche priest for that matter) cast urgency on another unit within 6" while he is in CC?
So, if a king or priest is within the 12 or 6" range, than they can cast urgency.
