Default Independent character losing coherency

If an Independent character loses his unit coherency with a unit he is attached to, can the player just choose to have him leave the unit instead of forming coherency again?

Sure. By leaving, the character allows the unit to be in coherency with itself.

I would assume that by moving out of coherency that the character was leaving anyway...

My understanding was that if a character is within 2" of a unit he is effectively a part of it. He may choose to move away or move with them. By this token, if the unit suffers casualties and he ends up outside of coherency then he has effectively already left the unit by the time it comes to the start of your next turn. Presumably this would also preclude you from using the character's leadership for morale tests, but I'm not sure if my interpretation is even correct.

Page 50 of the big rule book.

First of all, you can only leave or join the unit in the movement phase, so even if out of coherence he's still part of the unit for the turn. Now that that is cleared up.

You do not have to move the leader back into coherence on your turn. Just declare him leaving the unit (if possible).

Perfect clarity. Dunno where I got my interpretation from. Maybe something to do with IC status.

Cheers!
