The really odd thing about charge is that you don’t move if you fail, rather than moving anyway, but not getting into combat.

It’s like….

Unit leader, “Charge lads!”

(Rolls dice and fails roll high enough….)

Unit “run all that way… Sod that mate… Too far” (unit doesn’t move).

As opposed to…

Unit leader, “Charge lads!”

(Rolls dice and fails roll high enough….)

Unit runs “Bloody hell boss…. Further than it looked… I’m knackered” (unit fatigued and takes penalty to combat)

I don’t disagree about the bucket of dice though, and the attack, wound, save takes time, but so does Warmachine with its rolling for each troop in the unit.

As for alternate army and alternate unit play… which games have alternate unit mechanic and have the massive support of Warhammer or Warmachine? Like it or not, the mechanic of alternate army is popular.
