Is it possible for a necromancer or say a vampire count to cast spells when he is engaged in close combat? I have checked the rule book and there's nothing that says that it shouldn't be possible?
In the Magic section, page 135, Casting Spells: "Wizards cannot cast spells at units in close combat, unless the spell only affects themselves or otherwise says so in its description".
For a "normal" wizard with only line of sight spells this would mean that he cannot cast any spells while engaged in close combat, but for necromancers who only need LOS for gaze of nagash it should be possible to cast invocation of nehek and the other spells even if the necromancer or vampire count/lord is engaged in combat, am i correct?
You can cast magic out of close combat, but not LOS spells, as your LOS would only be the current combat. So you can cast any non-LOS spell even if the mage is in HTH.
