During our game today the following question arose:
An HQ (DE Haemunculus) was adjacted to a unit (DE Warriors). Due to enemy fire they suffered a damn lot of casulties, so only the HQ stayed alive.
Do I have to take a morale check, because the unit suffered more than 25% casulties or don't I have to, because my Haemunculus now counts as a single HQ? Personally, I guess he has to, but we weren't absolutely sure.
Any unit of troops losing 25% or more casualties to shooting during a single phase must make a leadershiptest to hold their ground.
You must see what you start from, which is a group. So yes, you need to take a test. The hq does not have to test after that, cause he is accostumed to operating alone.
If he was attached to the squad at the beginning of the shooting then he has to take the save. If he starts falling back he has to meet the criteria for regrouping (meaning that he can be chased off the board if the other player keeps within 6"). This is one reason I do not like retinues for DE, our leadership is too low to assure that 200+ points don't go fleeing off the table.
