Hi,
Weird thing ive noticed:
Character from DE book have a cold one as a mount. He also have a magic item called Pearl of Infinite Bleakness which gives him Immunity to Psychology rule. According to the rulebook whole model is immune to psychology therefore do not have to roll for stupidity.
Now what if this model join a unit that is not immune to psychology?
It is looks like my model loose its immunity and have to test stupidity as normal. But that just ridiculous.
Thank You.

You missed the bit where Immune to Psychology is only immunity to Fear, Panic and Terror.

ItP models are still subject to Stupidity, Hatred and Frenzy.

Which means he still rolls for Stupidity with the Pearl.

Yep, they must have gotten fed up with writing "even if immune to psychology" every time they wanted to give Stupidity, Hatred or Frenzy to daemons and undead.

Yep, ItP does not include stupidity, hatred, or frenzy (as was the case in the past).

It would have been nice, especially since it's worth exactly the amount of points the champion is allowed to take...*sigh*

It would be pointless as long as the rest of the unit was still subject to Stupidity. :p

Well it does say it grants it for the bearer and unit he is with.

It's funny, I've seen many a Dark Elf player think this item makes their unit immune to stupidity, but I've never seen one question whether their unit would also lose hatred as well ;)
