No Retreat

Detachment ability

Some forces never retreat from combat, no matter how bad it gets.

In comparison to Epic 40,000, we separated this ability from part of the 'No retreat, no surrender' rules for war engines, along with the new Unbreakable ability.

Where your detachment has the No Retreat ability:

  • After you lose a close combat or firefight with the detachment, do not make a Retreat move with it. Units in your detachment that remain within 15 cm of enemy units are not destroyed.

[TODO: We should add something about what happens if a No Retreat unit starts a turn in base contact with the enemy, as at FAQ: Starting the turn in contact with the enemy]
