So in just thinking about my game last night and one thing that we talked about after the game was that my Cleanser should have went after the caster at the end. Though when I think back on it I don't think he would have reached him with his 8" spray as I only moved him his max and felt he was still out of range. The question here really is, with units with ranged attacks, can they charge a unit to get close enough to hit them with a ranged attack. So lets say a unit has movement 5" so a charge of 8" with an 8" spray and I'm currently 15" away. Could I charge that unit to then get within spray range?
This is just a reflection on my game last night, because if that was the case I could have gotten 2 cleansers in the zone and had 2 shots at the caster.
I don't have a rule book right in front of me now, and this just popped into my head as I was reflecting back on the game from last night.

Thanks

A model needs a special rule like "assult" in order to charge and make ranged attack. There is also a rule called "Gunfighter" which allows a model to charge and attack, but in that case, the model that make ranged attack with must be base to base with the model (Pistol wraiths often do this)

Ok so charge is melee only except for special circumstances. I was pretty sure I couldn't have done it, just wanted to make sure.

correct, it is melee only unless they have assault.

that being said, the caster was closer to you than the gladiator was, but i could see how from your angle it might have looked the opposite.

also it is worth the risk of it being out of range anyways because rasheth is easier to hit and has way lower armor
