Space Marine Fall Back tatic effective?

Hi All,

Lets say a combat squad of vanilla SM are caught in an assualt by some orcs. Would it be a effective strategy to fail the morale check using the SM special rule "and they shall know no fear" and try falling back to get some more bolter shots off? As SM are generally better off shooting than CC.

I understand they may be caught in a sweeping advance and that the next enemy turn theyll just get assualted again.

I was just wondering what yall think?

You have to be careful though. You are not going to rally if the orks remain within 6 inches of the unit falling back. I have run more than one marine unit off the board when they tried this.
