Morning, i was just re-reading the section in the Necron codex about reanimation protocols and it keeps on saying "At the end of the phase after morale checks are done" yet it doesnt say which one. Do i then assume that it means at the end of any phase with which morale checks can be done? So after shooting and then after the assault phase?
And even the movement phase, as casualties and morale checks can be had there. (It seems you could Reanimate a model that dies in a Death or Glory attack or from Dangerous Terrain.

Reanimation protocols are taken at the end of every phase. ie. if you lose models in the shooting phase, at the end of said phase you test, same for the movement and the assaut phases.
The only times you don't get to test for RP is if the unit is destroyed, or if the unit falls back.
What i don't get is this bit in the 2nd paragraph "At the end of the phase, after any morale checks have been taken and fall back moves have been made..." well if you've fallen back then you've lost those reanimation tokens, so im guessing what it means is - After all fall back moves have been made, any units which have not fallen back get to activate their reanimation protocols. Otherwise it's a bit pointless.
Yeah, that phraseology had me scratching my head a bit too. There are a couple of instances in the codex where ambiguity rules supreme.
"Tau Commandment #226: Participants who use Velocity Trackers in the Tau Clay Pigeon Tournament will be disqualified"
There are three types of people in this world -- those who can count, and those who cannot.
It also clearly prevents a situation where someone would take Reanimation Protocols and get enough models back that a Morale Check wouldn't be necessary.
