    How do you O&G players deal with fear causing units. Today my large unit of Boyz that were being led by a Black orc Big boss with the armies BSB (1+LD to A total of 9) was charged by a unit of warriors of nurgle and promptly rolled an 11 and fled of the table. Needless to say I was really *****ed. So I would like to know how fellow orc and gobbo players deal with this devastating threat.

    You outnumber the enemy. Its as simple as that.
    If your boyz had outnumbered his warriors (which I am surprised they did not do) then you would not have fled off the table.
    Another way of dealing with scary units is to bait them, then voluntarily flle from thier charge, leaving other units to (hopefully pass their leadership tests) and charge them.
    The best option howver, is to shoot and zap them.

    :blink: Hang on......

    How on earth did your BSB get +1 leadership? The red raggedy banner is gobbos only.

    Outnumber is the key here, as CK said.

    Also, remember that you also have access to a lot of fear causing units (eg. trolls, giants, etc), so match them up if you can against your enemy's fear causing units as they cancel each other out.

    Your cheap unbreakable snots are also great to throw into combat and delay them while you position hittier units for charges.

    If at all possible, also support your main front unit and negate their rank bonus if any at all, and even the vile warriors of nurgle will fall before your might! Outnumbering should never be a problem with Orcs and Goblins!

    Take frenzied troops, ok they will chase stuff all over the table but if it is savage orc boar boyz they have a 14 inch charge range so they will catch most stuff. And if they can catch it they can kill it

    Correct.

    I think terror is the only thing that outnumbering doesn't matter.

    No, this Bobby guy said that his unit was charged took a fear test, failed, and ran away. On that test your unit strength does not matter. It does matter if you are beaten in close combat by a fear causing enemy as if it outnumbers you then you will break automatically (with no leadership test). Also im fairly certain that if you fail a fear test when being charged you dont flee at all but you will need to roll 6&#39;s to hit. If you fail a *terror* test then you will flee. Feel free to rip me apart here as im quoting from memory.

    Also I believe you&#39;re allowed to re-roll failed leadership tests with a battle standard, you didnt say you re-rolled so I assume you forgot in this case?

    That&#39;s correct, if a unit fails a fear test it doesn&#39;t flee. If the units -

    - Wishes to charge a fear causing unit and fail the test, then don&#39;t move
    - If they are charged by a fear causing unit and fail the test they hit on 6&#39;s

    And as pointed out if outnumbered by a fear causing unit and you loose combat, then you autobreak.

    Yep, tis only a terror causing unit you flee from.

    Also I believe you&#39;re allowed to re-roll failed leadership tests with a battle standard, you didnt say you re-rolled so I assume you forgot in this case?
    Nope only allows you to re-roll failed break tests, not psychology ones.

    YER ALL WRONG&#33;

    If charged by a unit with the same unit strength or lower, fail the feartest and you hit on 6&#39;s that combat round.
    If charged by a unit with more unit strength, fail the feartest and you run.
    So if a big bounch of zombies (30 of them) charge 29 black orcs, the black orcs will run, because they have a lower unit strength.
