I had an idea looking at the rules for the Deceiver, tried searching the forums, and couldn't find what I was looking for. Here it is:
With Deceive, the Deceiver can force a unit to take a Morale (or pinning) check. If the said unit falls back into friendly Necrons, it is destroyed of course.. right?
This thought led me to wonder if Fearless troops could be cut down in the same manner. To illustrate my thought, I drew this picture:
Using the Monolith, it would be quite easy to kill off expensive units with no stress in this manner.. if possible. Add Pariahs to the mix and.. zing!
If the Deceiver deceives some Plague Marines to fall back into some Necrons behind them, are they destroyed? Is there anything wrong with this theory?

Yes and No. No because it is possible for the falling back unit to move around the Necrons. Yes because if the only way they can go is block by impassible and or necrons...So more times then not the marines will just go around the necrons to make their full fall back move.
lol thats a funny pic, just had to say. rep!
too many, gave up counting. rough estimates of 10% even steven, 25% omg i lostorz! and 65% PWNED NEWBS! ^^
<Tossy> Crons are freaking invincible!
I share Sparty's opinion there, great picture. I love my profile shot
As for the idea, Poofter is correct in that the unit falling back would move around the necrons, however if you set up the necron unit in a U shape whice the units fell back into, they they would be killed as they would need to backtrack to get around the necron unit.
LOL, Microsoft Paint FTW
So in this situation, using a unit of Turbo-Boosting Scarabs to envelop the fall back path of the Plague Marines would work better?
Thanks for all help.
