    Morale in the Shooting Phase

    The basic rule says that if your unit takes 25% casualties in a single Shooting phase, it must take a Morale test or fall back. I have one quick question here. Is this counted from your unit strength at the beginning of the game, or at the beginning of that shooting phase?

    Say for example I have a unit of 20 kroot that take 4 casualties one turn, reducing them to 16. They take 4 casualties next shooting phase. Are they forged to test? 4 is only 20% of the original 20, but it is the full 25% of the remaining 16.

    I fight for the Greater Good. Too bad for you it's MY Greater Good.

    Snow Forces of T'olku W/L/D : 3-4-2... I like to think I'm learning, though.

    25% of the existing force at the beginning of the shooting phase. Check out the example in the book on p. 44 (under A) Causualties). The Kroots would have to take a Morale test as they just lost 25% of their squad (4 of 16). However, they cannot regroup if they have less than half their original models from the beginning of the game.

    Note that 5th Edition requires a Morale test for 25% casualties in any phase. (Close Combats following their own Morale rules, of course.)
