Just getting started playing and I'd love to do a tank shock (monolith) against a HQ Wolf Guard squad ... assuming it would do something damage wise. How does fearless work in relation to that, seems like it just pushes them back ...
Also, if I do the tank shock and it pushes them back, would the unit's be engaged in combat? ... Thanks for the help guys, I was getting pushed all around yesterday by those dumb wolves and can't really figure out how to punch through the terminator armor... Any help on that level would be miraculous lol
Yes, it would just push them back, and no, they're not engaged in combat, you can't be locked in combat with a vehicle that doesn't have a WS score. (Try the particle whip, iirc the hole of the template is AP1, not to mention Instant Death)

Well I'm not familiar with that unit but "Fearless troops automatically pass all Morale and Pinning tests they are required to take", and the tank shock rule says the troops need to take a moral test. So I would think that there is know way you could move them with your tank unless you literally stop on top of them; where they would move the minimal distance until they are out of the way. The tank can shot after a tank shock if it moves slowly enough so it is not locked in combat, meaning the terminators are also not in combat. Man I have a termie army they suck for my opponents, the only advice I can give you is to get some plasma lascannons or meltas. Hunker down and try to stop them lol, make them come to you. IDK hope this helps.
While fearless units do pass automatically (and a Ld9 Marine still has a good chance of passing), you can use this to force the squad to move. If you estimate your tank shock move correctly and position it, you can block them from assaulting a valuable unit, or block LoS.
Tank Shock can be great for this.
At the beginning of turn 1, I spray my opponent's army with the bacon flavored spray. Then I unleash my Boston Terrier Squiggoth who then devours their entire bacon flavored army! There is no defense against her cuteness! All are doomed!
