ok fellow heretics, i 've got a question for u... yesterday i was playing a game with a friend, my IG against his chaos scum. My snipers took a shot at one of his units, and i said to him take a pinning test, (sniper weapons are pinning and rending ) ,he said:" i don't have to take it, because all of my units are fearless".
My point is that you have to take it , fearless is for a morale test not a pinning test. Or else what's the point to have a leadership characteristic to a profile if you are fearless?
Also think about this situation: a chaos space marine is under fire by snipers. Snipers are generally very very accurate, one shot one kill. The logical thing to do for our chaos space marine is to get down or take cover ( unless he is a Khorne beserker! ) because probably he will lose his head!!! But no, the chaos scum is fearless, and in my opinion dumb, and he stays in the open..
no offense for chaos players...
