and on a related note...
Soulfright: "Wounds cannot be allocated to models with the Fearless or ATSKNF special rules."
Does this mean, that if shooting at a unit that in itself is not fearless, but which has a Fearless character standing as the closest target, then the wounds would just go to the next in line behind him? I'm thinking yes.....

Apologies if this is a thread necro, but this thread seems to be the most on point.
Now that these rules have been out in the wild for awhile, has a consensus developed about stacking the debuff from different formations, for example from both DA and Grotesquerie?
Parsing the thread above, it seems that since they are different detachments, it seems like stacking is allowed
"Enemy units within 12" of one or more units from this detachment suffer -1 to their Leadership value."
How about between different Grotesquerie units? Seems like not.
I'm going to the BAO in the coming weeks with multiple coven formations, so I may ask the TOs what the ruling is on this (and the nightmare doll thing, possibly), so that I can be confident in my in-game decision making in the event someone raises the issue.

Im going with DingK here;

- Since when does a rule stack with itself? Unless otherwise stated, it never does
This is just another one of those badly proofread statements GW has been riddling books with. It's not as bad as the Splinter Rack, but surely, we all understand that, RAI, an enemy unit can only receive a single -1 penalty. Regardless of the number of units or detachments they are from.

I originally thought they would not stack but I'm now of the opinion that they do. The rules state that a model cannot gain the benefit of a special rule more than once. I don't think that a Ld debuff can be described as a benefit. Bit pedantic maybe but what the hell. We need any advantage we can get!

Not to repeat myself, but Adhemar has it. The rule (in 7th) is that a model cannot gain the benefit of a special rule more than once. In the case of two overlapping Spectacle bubbles, no one is gaining a benefit more than once.
Other than that, there is no rule about special rules stacking.
