Good thing you pointed this out I left out several rules regarding
suppression and different races.

Tyranids- immune to suppression
Demons- Immune to suppression
Orks- may be supressed but get no penalties to morale checks to remove it.
In other words its not worth trying to supress orks more than once since
they receive no penalties to their morale check to remove suppression, its
always a straight roll plus leadership bonus, thus they are VERY resilient
to suppression as compared to other races.

This has been added to the army lists.

I suppose this answers the irregularity you mentioned?

Ack, I promised Ken to include this but I didn't. I added to the suppression
rules the following: "any unit with more than one DR point is immune to

This means that knights super heavies and stompas and others are immune to

Does that cover it? Found any more errors? Let me know.
