Using the following situation as a guide, I would like to know if I can assault after popping smoke.

Ironclad dreadnought in a drop pod lands 9 inches from target. Being equipped with 2 heavy flames it cant shoot the target, so it pops smoke to increase survivability.

Can I charge in the following charge sub-phase?

If I do charge, does the -1 to hit affect the enemies overwatch?

Thanks

Yes you can and no it wouldn't since no modifiers affect Overwatch unless explicitly mentioned.

If my posts appear rude to you, I apologize. It's not meant to be rude in any way, it's just the way folks are in my country. It's really more about being direct than being rude. I know how it's perceived in the english speaking community and I already try to tone it down but I barely notice when it's too much since it's normal for me.


So yeah, I'm really not rude it's basically just cultural differences that act against me here. Again, I apologize.

No, modifiers do not affect overwatch unless they specifically mention it. Eg, Imperial Guard Mordian Doctrine.

yeah you are right on the modifiers. Weird that charging from cover does not give any benefit on overwatch.

Cover does have an effect, because that modifies the save of the unit making the save rolls. Negative hit modifiers don't function, because overwatch says they don't (unless they specifically call out working in overwatch).

Pretty sure he knows that hence why he popped smoke after realising he wouldn't be in range with his flamers anyway. ;)
