Movement and Attcking

When reading the rules it seems to state under the walk section that a model cannot walk into an enemy models zone of control. Would this then mean that the only way to engage someone is from a run or charge? Or if you walk you are required to end in base to base and must make an attack meaning you cannot walk itno the zone of control if you dont attack?

You can move into base contact with an enemy model by declaring a melee action. I think that There might be some tricky wording about performing a move rather than a walk.

I have been messing things up it appears.  As part of a melee action you can move your movement value (aka walk) in the target's zone of control.  However I have been running into the zone of control and then attacking (not a charge) which is not allowed.  

So it appears you can only declare a melee and "walk" into the zone of control of the target or charge into the target's zone of control (move x2) and attack the target.

I do have a question about Charge but I think I know the answer.  Do I take a -1 MS penalty for charging?  I know if I perform a run action during the turn I get a -1 MS penalty but I am not sure if charging counts.  I don't think I get the penalty but as above I have been wrong before!

A run is a run and a charge is a charge. There is no penalty for charging.

The only game i know with this is Helldorado...

There are a number of traits that let you into enemy ZoCs (or flat out ignore them), but without those, the only way to enter a ZoC is through declaring a Melee or Charge action.  Same goes for entering BtB with an enemy model.

Thanks for the responses.  I figured Run and Charge were separate but when I saw the melee penalty for running I just wanted to be sure.

Thanks again!
