Fear Tests

  • Fear tests are Challenge Tests using the model’s Ki Statistic.
  • Models automatically pass Fear tests with a Challenge Number equal to or lower than their Fear (X) trait, but must still take a Fear Test if the Challenge Number is higher than their Fear (X) trait.
  • Fear Tests are Ki tests and any effects that affect Ki Challenge tests also affect Fear Tests.
  • Resolve a Fear test when:
    1. An Activating model declares an action or effect that would bring it into BtB with an Enemy model with the Fear trait. If the Activating model fails the Fear test remove one Activation Counter, regardless of the action declared, and its activation ends.
    2. An Activating model with the Fear trait declares an action that would bring it into BtB with an Enemy model. If the Enemy model fails its Fear test then it enters the Frightened State.
  • Note: Models only enter the Frightened State in case 2.

Tactical Tests

  • Both players nominate a model to perform an Opposed Test using a single D6 (With applicable modifiers)
  • The player who succeeds decides which player will be the Active Player first in the Turn.
  • This player also declares second when declaring the use of effects during the Starting and End phase until the next Tactical Roll.
  • In the case of a tie after checking number of Dice, there is no Active Player during this roll so the test must be re-rolled.
