These rules are very interesting but there are some points which are not
very clear for me.
In your example, the Eldars have a morale check at -2 : -1 because they are
outnumbered (2 guardians stands vs 4 Chaos Space Marines ones) and -1
because they have lost the close combat. How can you tell they lost the
fight, I mean that if in your example it is very clear in some other cases
it will not. For example : 5 assault marines fight 4 scorpions, 3 marines
stands are defeated and 2 scorpions stands are destroyed, who has won the
fight? Marines because they managed to kill two scorpions stands (scorpions
are very good close assault warriors) or scorpions because they've killed
more stands than marines?

Second question : why do you give moral boni for the winner of the close
combat as it will not have to make a moral check?
