I have a question about the difference between the rules for Eternal Hatred and the Black Guard's Warrior Elite rule. The two rules feel redundant to me in regards to how both allow re-roll of failed to hit rolls in combat. What am I missing?

Eternal Hatred: Normal hatred rules + being able to apply the re-roll failed to hit rolls in all rounds

Warrior Elite: Black Guard may re-roll any failed roll to hit in combat.

Actually Engra, Eternal Hatred is oly for the first round of combat while warrior is for all rounds of combat.

Eternal Hatred only gives you re-rolls in all rounds of CC when the enemy unit is HE, otherwise it is normal hatred.

Warrior Elite is against any enemy in all rounds of combat.

In the case of Black Guard, Eternal Hatred is redundant. Warrior Elite allows you to reroll every round anyway :)

Hatred has certain other aspects beyond re-rolling the to-hit rolls. If the unit hates an enemy unit that it has broken in close combat (or wiped out) then it must pursue (or overrun) if able.

Hatred (and therefore eternal) is also removed by the standard of Balance.
Warrior elite isn't.

Ah, of course, good points both! :D

Hatred is a strong word, warrior elite is pure skillz.

Warrior elite is also the nail in the coffin in the great BG vs Execs debate.

Who's coffin is it nailing?

Well since its an advantage for the BG, I assumed it was obvious.

BG is the default choice, in any case - selecting Execs is a matter of style.
