Default question about Ethereal?

okay, So I was thinking about getting an Ethereal. but i had a question about when he dies. So your Ethereal has some bad luck and dies oh no know everyone on the board has to take a leadership test. What happens if there in a devilfish? What do they do jump out of the devilfish then make their leadership test? I'm sure you guys can figure this out for me thanks.

Units inside transports are immune to morale checks.

Heya

Don't forget that he's an independent character and very difficult to target out of your army. Also, if he joins a small unit of FireWarriors or Pathfinders, he can join them in their Devilfish as well (so long as the model total doesn't go over 12).

If you're thinking of getting an Ethereal, check out some of the resources we have on them here. They're the underused unsung hero of the Tau codex as it were

A few resources:

Hell, yeah...best 50 points you can spend...in a game bigger than 1000 points.
