How do Morale tests and Hit & Run interact?
Hit & Run;
-happens at the END of an Assault Phase
-prevents Sweeping Advance rolls
-happen before sweeping advance, before end of combat pile in, therefore DURING the Assault Phase
So, in order, you would:
-determine assault results
-hit & run (because a successful hit & run prevents sweeping advance)
Does this mean a unit that FAILS morale Falls Back before using Hit & Run, therefore disallowing them from using Hit & Run at all because they are no longer locked in combat?
Do they not suffer any penalties of morale tests at all?
Came up in a game the other day; my Haemonculus killed a Crisis Suit 1" away from Tau table edge, winning combat by 2. The Tau player then Hit & Run his surviving suits out of the combat. Should he have made a morale test or no? And if he did, could he have fallen back off the table?
I believe relevant rules are on p.26-27, 29, and 38. Dakkadakka is so far of the opinion that the H&R happens AFTER assault results/morale tests. I guess my biggest issue is the wording of "No Sweeping Advance rolls are made." They say that's in reference to the unit leaving combat at that point, not in reference to a failed morale test. How is it supposed to work?
Thanks for your time & help!
