    ~Fearless=Unbreakable?

    ~I'm not sure if I misunderstood the rulebook, but it seems to me like any unit that has the "Fearless" then they are also unbreakable, as they do not fall back.

    ~Is this the case? Or have I misinterpreted something?

    You are correct but please see page 75 for the complete set of rules on this.
    Cheers.
    In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.

    In case the OP has a little trouble, here's some simplification:

    Units "Fall Back" when they fail morale tests.
    Fearless models automatically pass morale tests.
    Therefore, fearless units should never fall back.
    (This is ,of course, barring the potential for situations to arise that call for Fall Back moves without morale tests. Who knows? Future rules or powers always throw a wrench in things...)

    This help?

    Actually, the rule says fearless models "will never fall back," so there's no room for a wrench there. Being pinned is another case though. There is actually room for an ability that pins without causing a morale check. In fact, the Dark Eldar terrorfex used to do this very thing by calling for a standard Ld test (and not pinning test, there's a difference) and then pinning any unit that fails. That has since been quashed due to the term "pinned" now holding the meaning "go to ground by failing a pinning test" which fearless units cannot do.

    But if you had an ability that called for a unit to go to ground as the result of some kind of test not pinning, you could make fearless units hit the dirt.
