There used to be universal special rules that cause units to take leadership test.. i think nids had some units that were "terrifying" or something like that. (Keep in mind i stopped playing during 3rd ed. before picking them hobby back up in 5th) I have not seen any of that in 5th... am i missing somethign or were those rules kicked to the curb?

I have a love /hate relationship with anything green.

Those were 2nd Edition rules that no longer apply (some units caused Fear or Terror).

There are a few psychic powers and pieces of wargear that emulate some of these effects, but nothing is "Terrifying" anymore.


Trust me, no matter what damage they have the potential to do, single-shot weapons always flatter to deceive in 40k.                                                                                                       Rule #1

Snikrot from the Ork codex is terrifying. Units in close combat with Snikrot resolve their close combat at -1 leadership. I think that necrons have terrifying visage, which does the same?

Kicked to the curb.

It seems that even the greenest imperial conscript has seen enough crazy in his (probably short) life that he will not freak out and lose his chalk even in the face of Anakharis, High Spider Lord of the El'Lahuan Tombworld.

Flayed ones, on the other hand, will freak him the freak out...they's freaky.

Yeah, it's like Iorek said (am I pronouncing that correctly?), there are psychic powers, special abilities and wargear that emulate those effects instead of them being blanket special rules.
