Default Defensive Grenades & Counter Attack

Ok now we can get defensive grenades so I've got a question. If defensive grenades eliminate the extra attack for charging and counter attack allows you to behave like you charged if you yourself were charged, do snare mines eliminate the extra attack from counter attack?

nope.

You throw out grenades at them before they throw out theirs or something like that
Basically you dont use your own grenades on your self, unless your a terrorist.

I think he's wondering if a snare mines work AGAINST a unit with counter-attack. For example, lets say a unit of Veterans charge a unit of space marines who have the Counter-Attack rule. The space marines counter-attack, but because of the snare mines are put back at their original attacks.

I would say that this works. Firewarriors have their photon grenades, which do the same thing. I could see them throwing those out if they had to charge the enemy, so that they would maintain the advantage of the charge.

This is just going from a rules perspective, of course. I have no idea how they would use snare mines safely, unless they just memorized where they put every single mine.

You... you frighten me, sir. Do I have to get the comissar, or are you going somewhere with this idea? Particular units/orders, maybe?

I'm thinking, brewing something nasty with a ministorum priest. A purely defensive unit for line defense something like that. a stand fast unit to hold the line.
