    Sweeping Advance?

    I encountered a situation yesterday, and got to thinking. This is relevant to Chaos in this way. My death guard are fearless thus meaning they wont fall back and can't be sweeping advanced. I was losing to my cousins orks and I wiped 2 seperate 8 and 10 men squads ,respectively, by sweeping advance because of his horrible I value. This swung the game in my favor. anyone else think this is a little overpowered? let me know your thoughts. I may also be using this wrong... I understand that when one side falls back, you roll d6+ I value and if the attackers is greater than the retreaters they are destroyed? is that correct? thanks guys

    yes you are correct. The thing is he must have been very unlucky to fail mob up and Ld test. Its not really overpowered as people tend to not run away in 40k. You need to outnumber them hugely until there Ld is low enough to fail and then you actually need to win combat.

    I think sweeping advance should be kill 1 model per model in the advancing unit.

    The Deathguard are amongst the toughest of the tough so you shouldn't be surprised

    Just remember that, even though they are fearless and won't turn and run, if you're beaten in close combat, you can still take extra wounds. I think it's in the main rule back under the 'no retreat' section.

    But definitely, fearless is an attribute which is not to be sniffed at (painfull memories of 8 Space marines being butchered by 4 Seraphims due to unlucky dice ^_^

    lol you'd shiver at what my lone howling banshee has swept aside in her lifetime.

    Once my brothers librarian killed 1 howling banshee to win combat. He then swept 5 rangers, 5 hawks, 4 banshees, 3 warp spiders. Squished by a wraithlord next turn. (and yes I know my eldar army has nothing to do with the chaos forum.)

    Um, I'm not 100% sure, I don't have my rulebook with me, but I'm pretty sure you can only sweep one squad at a time.
    There once was a Lord named Vlad,
    Who's fighting skillz really were mad.
    He killed and he maimed,
    He spilled blood in Khorne's name.
    And the fact that he's legal makes me glad

    That is true.

    Fearless units are quite powerful, but remember if they lose combat and are outnumbered they may suffer automatic wounds.
