In the rule book it says a character with the fearless special rule looses it if they join a unit which don't have it. But in the space marine codex in the chaplain entry the rule (i think its called) honour of teh chapter which makes the chaplain fearless it also says any unit he joins becomes fearless seeing there are no fearless units in the marine codex to start with this makes it a contradiction and really annoying which one is correct?????/

More simply put, the effects of Honour of the Chapter are twofold. The first is that it applies the Fearless universal special rule to the Chaplain, and the second is that it applies Fearless to any squad the Chaplain joins (leads.) There's no contradiction there... it simply provides a special rule to a squad if he's part of it. When or if he leaves the squad, they are no longer affected by that rule, so they no longer are Fearless. Seems simple enough to me.

This is a special rule added to the Chappie, which is geared towards fluff. His presence makes his troopers more dedicated to their cause. It would be equivalent to taking Wolverine to a Bar Fight. :laugh:

If you read through the Chaplians list of special rules and it just stated Fearless as a special rule then yes.. by joining a squad he would loose it. But it doesnt.. he has the special rule "Honour of the Chapter". This special rule "conveys" Fearless to the character and the unit he is joined to.
