A cavalry model (A) charges through an incorp model (B).
It gets a free strike, so the incorp model becomes corporeal.
Then A is placed back in b2b with B, and survives.
Can A now go for a non-magical impact attack to kill B?
If it succeeds can it continue its movement to finish its charge move and perform its charge attack if possible?

Cheers!

Because model A resumes its movement after the rewind, it is base to base again and can trigger Impact Attack(if it doesn't use it before during this charge).

Also, check this;


When this model makes a melee or ranged attack, before the attack roll is made it loses Incorporeal for one round.

And don't forget that you rewind the movement just because model B loses Incorporeal.

Sequence goes like this:

1) Charging cavalry model A that has not yet performed an impact attack contacts incorporeal model B and elects not to use an impact attack (since it couldn't damage the model).

2) Cavalry model A moves through B, and at the point that it leaves B's melee range (while overlapping B), B elects to make a free strike.

3) Free strike is resolved. Assuming model A survives, it is rewound to before it overlaps Model B (per infernal ruling) and continues its movement/charge.

4) Per page 46 paragraph 2, a model in base contact that moves toward another model contacts it. This gives model A another chance to make an impact attack.
