Yeah, crossing open ground against an enemy with the heights sucks. Especially when you've got a SAN of FOUR!!!

And don't forget your mortar, either.

:?:
Steve asked a good question during our game.

Does a hero created by a HOB result that is in the Hero creation + Battle Hardening sweet spot (which in this case resulted in Fanatic) get created with Fanatic status?

I thought no because I'd never seen it done.

My post game rules dive leaves me unsure. A10.8 states ..."A SMC created from a already Fanatic MMC (15.21, 18.2) is also Fanatic...."

So is the (newly created) Hero Fanatic on the same HOB roll that caused the MMC to go Fanatic, or does the Fanatic status have to exist prior to the HOB DR that creates the Hero?

What comes first the Hero or the Fanatic? :shock:

What do you guys think?

Without parsing it too much, I would think that the key word is "already," and hence no. If the unit was already fanatic, say from an ssr or previous turn, then yes. If it just acheived that status, then no.

I did not see anything obvious in the ASOP.

Maybe there is a "Perry sez" for this?

Nothing in the Perry sez collection on Game Squid, but there was this from the Romanowski Q&A:

A15.21 & A18.2 If a hero/leader is created from a
Fanatic unit, is that SMC Fanatic too?
A. Yes. Note, however, that a Heat of Battle DR
that results in both Battle Hardening of, and the
creation of a hero from, a non-Fanatic MMC does
not create a Fanatic hero (because the hero was
not created from a Fanatic unit; rather the
Fanaticism and Hero Creation occurred
simultaneously). [An95w; An96; Mw]

So not official, but does reference the 1995 and 1996 Annual, which could be perused.

Annual Q&A is good enough for me.

I concurr, I think the wor "already" is the key. So, only if the parent unit was Fanatic prior to HOB roll, is the resulting Hero Fanatic.
