With the new edition dropping in June, it was only a matter of time before we saw some leaks hit the internet. It’s always nice to get a sneak peek into the rules, and these look like they are taken from the book, but with any leaks, nothing is 100% until GW actually drops it.

10th Edition Warhammer 40k Core Rules: Charge & Fight Phases
You still charge 2d6″, have to move within engagement range of only units you are charging, stay in coherency, can still declare against more than one unit, and don’t need line of sight.
The rules come from Warhammer Community.
All sorts of terrain are classed as Barricades, from promethium pipelines to ramshackle defence lines, and any model within 3” can claim cover so long as the object partially obscures them from at least one of their attackers. As the thickness of a barricade can often make it difficult to get within 1” of an enemy unit when charging from the opposite side, this terrain type also modifies the Engagement Range rules to include models within 2”, providing they’re attacking a unit on the other side of the barricade.
However, different types of terrain give different benefits for the units in them when it comes to combat. You can see all of the terrain types and benefits here.
10th Edition 40k Fight Phase Rules
The player whose turn it does not get to pick the first combat they want to resolve, but if you charge in, you do get to fight first. You can still consolidate into enemy units, but they will get to attack you back.
The wording on this means you can’t move units already in base contact to pile in, but other models still get a 3″ pile in more as long as you move closer to the closest enemy. You have to be in the engagement range of an enemy model or in base-to-base contact with a model that is within engagement range to fight.
It’s also interesting you have to end within engagement range of the enemy if possible. So if a enemy unit is within 3″, you must get to the 1″ engagement range.
