My friends and i were curious about what happens if you have an hq with a retinue, and he gets singled out and killed (by an assassin or what have you) and the retinue is still alive, does the retinue continue to fight as normal or how does that work exactly?
Depends on the composition of the retinue. Familiars die. If you have acolytes, warriors or what have you, then they become their own unit.
Unless it specifically says otherwise in their descriptions, most retinues continue to function normally after its HQ is dead (though most likely its leadership would be changed).
