Welcome to Librarium Online!
I wonder some questions about this. I have to fight agains a friend of mine and he use a necro army with a character (Ctan I think or the Deceiver, I can't remember).
His character force some leadership test or a pinning test and still if the creatures or the units is assumed to pass automaticaly theses kind of test.
So I wonder do I pass automatically the leadership test by the synapse ability? Or not?
Can I ignore his pinning test in the same way?
Any help on this would be appreciated

thx for the hint
ummh, that's sound true, exactly what we thought. However, I wonder how to approach an army with a character so strong than a Ctan. A bunch of stealers with a broodlord seem the better things that could challenge him, but it's not like he his the only enemy on the map too.
Does a tyrant can challenge him and have a chance too?

Avoid getting into assault with it unless it's unavoidable. Blast it with Venom Cannons instead.
Why do the survivors remain anonymous -- as if cursed -- while the dead are revered? Why do we cling to what we lose while we ignore what we still hold?
Name none of the fallen, for they stood in our place, and stand there still in each moment of our lives.

To the points:
The deciever is tricking them, its a morale check but yes even synapse, fearless or unpinnable units get tricked and pinned/fall back.
The c'tan are nasty customers, as noted HtH with them sucks, you'll die, your tyrant has no chance as he needs 6 to wound, best bet is, as noted venom cannons and /or a swarm of renders, remeber though you will naed to average 10 rending hits (60 attacks!!) to get the kill, so go with the venoms, unless your feeling lucky, a kamikazi implant attack carnifex with enough attacks might manage it, with the extra wound upgrade, but its far from guaranteed, 2 on the other hand.......
Ask not a question of the eldar, for they will give you three answers all of which are true and horrifying to know.
Thank you for your advices. I will try not getting too closer of him unless I can't do anything else.
If I remember my Deceiver rules correctly, all his powers merely force the enemy to take leadership/pinning tests. They don't automatically suffer the effects of said tests, they just have to make the roll and if they fail they suffer the effects even if they would normally ignore said effects (I wonder if I can re-write that sentence to squeeze "effects" in there one more time...oh wait, I just did :p). Since critters in Synapse range automatically pass these tests, they would be immune to those powers.

Yeah, I go for the same. Broodlord and retunie loaded with IA, Broodlord is a great character hunter. I find him taking down many hero's, and he can make it look easy.Originally Posted by LokiAus
