Default Counter-Attack Clearification

When charging a unit with Counter-Attack, does the charger still get the +1 attack bonus for charging?

Ex. 6 Harlequins with 3 attacks each charge a unit of Blood Claws that have the counter attack ability. Will the Harlequins get 24 attacks on the charge, or just their standard 18?

As I understand the rules, yes the attacker still get's +1 attack on the charge. All the counter attack rule does under 4th edition is allow the defender to move in his models to get as many stuck in as possible. Works well if the dattacker is hitting an extended arm of a large group hoping to kill everyone in the kill zone and avoid the defenders attacks.

pepsi, where did you find that in the rule?

The rule doesn't say that the oponent loses the +1A so they still get it however you do not, the only benefit you get is that all your guys move 6" to try and engage.

There are of course ways round not getting the extra attack for counter-charging...10pts in the space wolf codex...My wolfguard always count as charging now....or near enough!
