When casting Vanhels on an unengaged unit it says they make make an 8'' move as it were the "remaining moves phase" so does this mean that they can't charge, since you can charge in the remaining moves phase?
That is precisely correct.
IG since 1999 __ DA since 2002 __ Tau since 2005 __ SoB since 2007
Brets 1997-1999 __ TK since 2009 __ Empire since 2010
That's pretty much it to my knowledge. We can no longer charge in the magic phase. On the plus side we get rerolls to hit until our next magic phase, and we can bubble. Vanhel's Danse and Hellish Vigour are just so good.
That is correct, you can't use vanhels to charge anymore. Think of the spell as a way to keep your whole army moving across the field, since we can only march near the general now. I think it is really cool how it affects multiple units. They really put a lot of thought into it.
It's honestly better now;
a) you get both the old effects rolled into the basic spell now!
b) charging means piss all unless you have lances or else are a unit that gets impact hits.
Our infantry still functions the way it always has in 8th; walk right upto your target, let them charge you so you can get your invos going strait away!
Vanhel's still lets us pick our fights and/or set-up easier flank/rear charges than anyone else can, plus we now have the combat buff as standard.
No 'nerf' here far as I can see!
It does work wonders getting across the field very quickly, especially if you can get 2 off in a turn, although my main concern was using it to help get flankers and or my fast units into combat with war machines crews, I mean a cannon hitting fell bats or dogs isn't so bad since they will servive the hit for sure, although a volley gun or prgan gun, or something else that hits multiple times will be able to take out units of warmachine hunters. Granted though there shooting at poor units and leaving my front line still mainly intact if they do choose to shoot them, but sadly gone are the days of setting up charges in the movement phase and charging in the magic phase.
