Pinned Leaders?

Post by remgain »

Hi!

Today happened the following: a team with a JL in open is pinned. In the following phases all the men are killed, leaving the leader alone.
Do the leader continue to benefit of the increased cover (pinned) or not?

Thank you!
Marco

Hi Marco,
Since Leaders are not affected by Shock the JL is no longer pinned so would lose the cover benefit. He could choose to move or go tactical to retain the equivalent benefit.

In real life, it might make more sense to treat the leader as tactical until the player chooses to have the leader do something else that takes him off tactical. Having the leader as the last survivor of his unit doesn't seem likely to make him more vulnerable in real life since at that point he wouldn't really have the same incentive to be actively commanding as when their were other unit members to be lead.
