    Fearless units immune to pinning?

    Are fearless units immune to pinning.

    Also, Howling Banshees, are fearless units required to make a check against they War shout power?

    Fearless units automatically pass any and all morale tests they are called to make. As the two examples you give are both morale tests, they are effectively immune.

    Technically, a pinning check is a pinning check and a morale check is a morale check, but Fearless units are both immune to pinning and morale tests.

    OK, What about a Dire Sword. I have not got my codex handy (in work) but I believe a leadership test is required on it.

    While a morale test is a type of leadership test, a leadership test is NOT (neccessarrily) a morale test. Fearless units are only immune to Morale and Pinning tests, so don't worry the diresword still work on fearless units.

    The murkiest part of this situation is when something causes a Leadership test with the result being an automatic pin, as with the Dark Eldar Horrorfex. By the letter, it can in fact pin a fearless unit since fearless only protects them from the pinning test itself, but most everyone is going to cry cheese and say you can't do that. I don't blame them, because it's about as much of an exploit as you can find.

    But I guess that's just my way of railing against an ability that removes a major part of the game.
