I am a new player to warhammer, 3 months now I have been enjoying the game. However some of the rules still elude me. The most recent I have encountered is with special items that cause panic if a wound is succesful, such as the Skaven warp fire cannon. If such an item strikes a unit that is in close combat, and a wound is succesful, does that unit have to make a panic test. Also if a unit within 6" of a unit engaged in close combat, do they need to make a panic test.
Panic tests are taken as soon as the panic-causing event transpires. Nearby units would only potentially panic as a consequence if the unit that just wet its pants met one of the conditions in the rulebooks, i.e., wiped out by shooting, etc.
its also worth noting that units engaged in close combat are immune to psychology in this edition of the rules.
Arms are an instrument of evil, No measure for thoughtful men until there fail all other choice but sad acceptance of it.

Not actually immune. They simply don't have to make panic-, fear- and/or terrortests (p.4. They still are in trouble when a fear-causing opponent outnumbers them and manages to win CR.
It ain't easy bein' green... :-)
Great, thanks to all of you for your responses. This will help considerably in the future.8Y
