Just a quick question regarding how dragon prince treat fire attacks.

All Cavalry fear fire now,
Dragon Ps are completely immune to fire based attacks, and so can't be harmed at all by them.

Do they still fear a unit with flaming attacks?

Everything I can logically think of should say no, but theres nothing in the FAQ about this, but it just seems weird that the sons of caleador would fear the fire

Logically yes. Becuase it is the horses that fear it. From a fluff perspective, instintcually. Just because the armor the Riders wear makes them immune to flaming doesnt mean the horses dont fear it.

I guarantee that the GW ruling (Always being RAW not RAI) would be that the unit is immune to fire and therefore immune to the fear that fire causes.
Looks like someones been on the bad side of a GW FAQ a couple of times.

personaly i would interperit it as that they DO fera the fire, the armour make sthem immune to fire bassed attacks, it dosent removce the fire form the enemy unit and its not that they are immune to it or not, it scares them. they arnt being attacke dby it its beening waved in front of their faces :)

obviously going pure fluff wise tehy shouldnt be scared of it, but i would interprit as they are and if i played against tehm i would us eit as such and if i used them my self i would play as such :/

just my interpritation.

Depends on your definition of immune.

If my unit is "Immune" to magic, and a spell causes wounds and also makes the unit take a fear test, would I only be immune to the "Wounds" component of that spell? Should I not be immune to the "Fear" part of the spell too?

I can see how it could be argued both ways, but I come down on the side of:

"This unit is immune to special rule X, therefore all the rules text for special rule X is ignored."

If they were fighting in a building, for example, the Dragon Princes wouldn't have failed wounds against them rerolled either.
