Default Priests, Righteous Fury, and death...

Interesting query came up tonight in a game against Imperial Guard. A Guard Platoon Squad with attached Priest charged into my unit. I attacked before he did and I killed his Priest, being an Independent Character and thus able to be singled out.

If the Priest is killed before the unit he is attached to attacks (on a turn where they charged), should the remaining squad members still be under the effect of his Righteous Fury ability?

Default Re: Priests, Righteous Fury, and death...

I would say yes, for several reasons.

#1 As a general rule, mostly to keep things simple, I say that all effects last until the beginning of the next turn.
#2 A turn represents the passage of a short amount of time, but is fairly abstract. Most guys are hitting/shooting each other at the same time, it's just not plausible to play like that obviously. So he may have not actually died at the point in the turn in which he was removed.
#3 Casualties aren't necessarily dead, so from a fluff perspective he could still be shouting/screaming in support of his troops. Either that or the troops could be 'righteously furious' that their priest was just killed. :P
