Hi guys,

Can anyone please help with the following:

Do units only have to take only 1 morale check ever or each time a situation occurs as listed on page 27 of the rulebook (there seem to be 4).

It says that broken troops must also take a morale check at the start of close combat segment if they are engaged in close combat:

Is this in addition to the morale test they would have presumably already taken?

It says that you cannot leave close combat - I take it this means that even if units fail their
morale test then they have to continue to fight and cannot fall back Or can they choose to fallback?

Thanks for any help.

Sorry, should have said - surely the moral test for close combat would be the second morale test so if they fail, would they not just be removed?

Yes, so if a unit is broken, but passes its morale check as a result of having been broken, it still has to take another check if it is engaged in close combat. This is why broken units are so very vulnerable in second edition Epic in a close combat situation, except units with a morale value of one of course ;).

It is not possible to voluntarily fall back in second edition Epic, so if the unit passes its morale check, it fights on, if not the rules for failing a second morale check are applied.

You're welcome :). Second edition Epic is my favourite GW game of all time, so I'm glad that others are still playing it.
