Can a model with Counter Charge but no :Magic-Wpn: make a counter charge attack against an incorporeal model who moves into its counter charge area and decloaks to make an attack on someone?

Counter charge says it happens "when an enemy model advances and ends it movement within 6" of this model and in its LOS, this model can immediately charge it." As a result of this wording, counter charge usually occurs before the advancing model makes its attacks.

But what about an incorporeal model like a pistol wraith? If it advances into a counter charge models area and then takes a shot at someone, it is still incorporeal at the moment it ended its movement, and then transitions to corporeal in order to make the attack. So if the counter charge model lacks magic weapon, does it miss the window of opportunity to land a hit?

You can charge a model that satisfies the requirements of Counter Charge after they finish movement but before they move onto action. The model charged will have yet to make an attack, so would still be incorporeal based on your example.

Unfortunately this is the case, poor war dog couldn't save Zerkova.......
