Once a unit with Frenzy is beaten by a fear-causing unit, does it auto-break? Or do the effects of Frenzy wear off the following rounds?

Frenzy wears off the instant the unit looses in hth. It does auto-break as long as the US is lower than the winner's unit(s). Else it has to make a ld test.

The effects of the frenzy wear off immediately after the unit has lost the combat, and before any break tests would be resolved. So yes, they would auto-break if beaten by superior US fear-causing enemy.

It is for the above reasons that the standard for Khorne in the mortals list is so nice. Sure a 50 pt banner better be worth it but it keeps your units in frenzy so that they do not auto break. It saves your extra attack and keeps you from auto breaking.

What I like to to is have a unit of khorne knights with this banner and smash them into a large rank of troopers. They will usually stick around even if they get beat and whittle away at them.
