View Full Version : Monster Reaction

Okay, I got a Goblin Warboss on Gigantic Spider and he's going into a unit of spider riders. Today I was reading through the Monstrous Mounts section of the rulebook to remember the rules and I came upon an unanswered question. (Or at least I didn't find an answer.)

If my Warboss dies and the Gigantic Spider is still in the unit I'm assuming he still has to roll on Monster Reaction. But what I fail my Ld test what happens? If he becomes stupid, whimpers, or frenzies does he have to leave the unit since he no longer has a rider and is a monster? Or does the unit have to deal with his Uh?, Whimper, or Rampage! result? (i.e. making them Stupid, Unbreakable, or Involuntarily charge?)

The second the rider is killed the mount ceases being joined to the second unit.

Exactly. Once the monster is no longer being ridden it becomes a normal monster and not a ridden monster, and must therefore be immediately moved out of the unit.

For reference see the BRB FAQ part 2 which talks about this situation. You must immediately remove it from the unit, meaning before you roll for Ld.
