Quick question, Does the mini feat of the Menoth Zelots, still take effect if the unit leader is thrown to make them out of formation.

Ie, they come up and feat, I then use a 2 handed throw and move the officer (monolith bearer more than 9 inches away from the other models, does this mean they are no longer under the mini feat and can be damaged?

The only requirement for Greater Destiny is that they are in formation when the ability is used. After that you can do whatever you want to them and they are still effected by it.

Incorrect. The models must remain in command to remain invincible.

The exact text,


Greater Destiny: Once per game during its unit's activation, this model can use Greater Destiny. For one round, models in the unit in formation do not suffer damage except from spells and feats.

You have to be in formation to be immune to damage thats not from a spell or feat. So if the monolith bearer(or another model) is moved such that models are now outside of command they can be damaged. Naturally the Monolith bearer himself can never be removed from command.

In order for it to effect models that were out of command it would require the text to say "For one round, models in the unit currently in formation do not suffer damage except from spells and feats." which would make it a pulse-like ability.
