Is there anything available in the Chaos armoury or Legion armoury that allows leadership tests to be rerolled or increase leadership? I'm just looking for ways to limit the effect of Zoanthrope Psychic Scream, which really stings if you have to take a pinning test.
Just the Marks of Undivided or Chaos. Chaos marks obviously make them fearless, whereas the Undivided just lets you re-roll.
I have a side-question on the same topic...If you kill something with a Daemon weapon, and a Zoanthrope with psychic scream is near you - do you use the negative modifier when taking the Daemonic Mastery test too?
Other than the marks, I forget off-hand if there is anything else you can do.

The icon of chaos undivided that a chosen unit can use will grant troops in close proximity fearlessness. Its expensive though and will only work on troops with the right mark
Yeah but Fearlesness doesn't prevent you from making pinning tests, and the MoCU won't let you reroll because Leadership test is different than Morale according to the LO FAQ.
So, nothing I can do eh.
Wait, what? It says right in the Chaos Codex (3rd printing) and also in the BGB (and I quote from the BG: "Fearless troops never have to fall back and are assumed to automatically pass any Morale test they are required to take. They can never be pinned."Yeah but Fearlesness doesn't prevent you from making pinning tests, and the MoCU won't let you reroll because Leadership test is different than Morale according to the LO FAQ.
So, nothing I can do eh.
On pg. 46 of the BGB, Morale tests are described as a type of Leadership test. So, what's the big deal?
Sorry I misread the Fearless entry.
And I'm not sure about the MoCU being able to reroll because of the entry in LO FAQ that states Morale tests are a specialized form of Leadership test, and since Pinning goes against leadership instead of morale you can't use the reroll. I'd love it if this wasn't true though.
fearless actually makes you pass moral and pinning test according to the rulebook, so man alone test, target priority ect. still apply as those are leadership test

Target priority tests indeed, but "man alone test"??Originally Posted by hiddenevil
What would be the point taking this test when a fearless unit (no matter how many are left) never has to fall back?
Kind of hard to imagine the last Rubric of a squad going "GUUUYYS!! ...man, I'm all alone - I want to go home."
The Last man standing section states the model must take a leadership test to avoid falling back, but it's in the "Morale" section.. so I, and the local group, have interpreted that as a morale check without the -1 modifier for being under half (and hence can be rerolled by MoCU).
Of course, that's an inpretation and could be wrong, as it's not perfectly clear what they meant. The BGB has multiple places where it mix and matches leadership and morale talking about the same test.
