Ok - simple question - if i have a hero with a lower leadership than the unit he joins, which ld to i use for tests - the hero? or the unit?

- Thanks

Always the highest... in this case the unit.

Note that it is always the highest after all modifiers are applied as well.

Example: Dwarf Lord (Ld10) with Hammerers (Ld9, Stubborn) test on Ld10 for all basic Ld tests, and Ld9 for lost combats (assuming no other effects, e.g. Doom and Darkness).

You always get to choose between the hero's and the unit's leadership. In case of a stubborn unit, it's almost always the unit's to choose.

I was under the impression that you have to pick the highest Ld value after all modifiers and other considerations have been taken into account. This stops players 'choosing' to use a lower leadership if they want a unit to flee... a very dodgy practice. I can't back this up with a solid quotation from the Rulebook though.

I can do that.

If a unit includes models with different Leadership values, always use the one with the highest Leadership value.

I can do that.

Good! I think in the 6th edition you could actually choose.

7th Ed book - page 5, Leadership Tests, last paragraph. You always use the highest :)
