If an Aun dies, it is stated that all tau units must take a leadership test or fall back. IN the codex, it is stated that vehicles have a leadership of 7, but the rulebook states that vehicles never take leadership test....
Hmm, at first I would think they wouldn't pay the price for failure since they aren't a physical Tau unit in the flesh....but then I realized who is piloting the vehicles. I assume if they saw their leader gunned down, they'd think of retreat even inside the safety of vehicle.
Just my opinion.
Record as of 26 December for my Static Tau Cadre.
10 wins, 0 losses, and 1 draw.
Last game: Victory over Necron in a 600 point "kill em all" that lasted til turn 10 ending with a phase out.
Vehicles are immune to morale. Units in vehicles are also immune.
Here you go:Page 73 of the 4th Edition Rulebook.Vehicles don't normally need to take Morale checks for any reason...It is assumed that in all cases the vehicle's crew has unshakeable faith in both their vehicle, and you as their supreme commander. Any occasional lapses that do occur are represented by shaken and stunned crew damage results.
This actually isn't that clear-cut...
"Vehicles don't normally need to take Morale checks for any reason..."
"Price of Failure" makes no exception for vehicles... Whether this is due to a vehicle's usual immunity to Morale from any source or because it is supposed to affect Tau vehicles, is impossible to say.
On a fluff basis, I would argue that Tau vehicles should check for this, seeing as their "Supreme Commander" was on the table and got hosed. However, since it is impossible to say what the intention is, there's little choice but to follow the explicit reading of the rules and allow them to use their regular immunity to avoid the fate of the rest of the Tau which are now executing an immediate tactical withdrawal.
"The meat things seek to destroy ourselves. They hunt us as we hunt them but they are weak and uncertain. The inferior flesh will be entirely destroyed, all biomatter consumed. Ourselves will fight to the last, all weak flesh must be devoured."
The FAQ doesn't clear alot of things.Originally posted by Lost Nemesis@Mar 5 2005, 19:59
I can understand, fluffwise, why they would check but it doesn't even clear this up in the 4th Edition FAQ available on the GW website.[snapback]344795[/snapback]
