    A commander chaplain??

    I have this chaplain and he looks really cool i think. Also i was convinced a while back my force commander ought to look old and honored, well this chaplain fits the bill.

    Point wise the diffeence between a DA master and an interigator chaplain is about 10 once you take into account the free weapon and rosarius (i.e. iron halo) so basically the chaplain is a bargain. the stats are all the same too.


    Fluff wise, how would a commander-chaplain work? Its for my tenthcompany, scouts if that makes a difference. i mean in all reality the only difference is who i 'say' the leader is, vs. who get the point costs of the real leader.

    Are you saying a Chaplain commanding a force with a DA Master in it? If that DA Master is the captain of the 10th company and there are no other captains in the army and no chapter master, then I would say the captain would hands down be the commander. Each company has its own chaplain but the captain is in command of the company, so I think that explains that. If you are talking instead of a captain, well, I always saw each company's chaplain as being sort of the Captain's right hand man (in addition to other duties) and (in my opinion) would most likely be the 2nd highest ranking person in the company, so perhaps the captain would be busy commanding another force (or a number of forces from the company) and have put the chaplain in charge of your force.

    If this is purely a fluff-question then it would work perfectly.

    According to the Insignium Astartes the Tenth Company consists of an undefined number of scout squads supported by bikes, a Captain, a Chaplain and an Apothecary.

    This means that apart from these guys you are allowed no other characters (no Librarians, Techmarines or Standard Bearers).

    Oh... And as for how to field him I would suggest you mount him on a bike so he doesn't get left behind when the rest of your army takes off..

    Remember that a Chaplain is best in the thick of the battle.

    Actually only no standard bearer, since the 10th company (for obvious reasons) does not have its own standard. The Librarians and Techmarines don't come from the companies anyways, they come from the Chapter's Librarium (I think that's what it's called...can't get to my book right now) and Armory, respectively. None of the companies have their own, it isn't just the 10th.

    I think he is asking more about the fluff of whether such an arrangement would work and if so how?

    Yes you are right but even though Librarians and Techmarines come from different places they are still assigned to certain companies. All companies have a Librarian and a Techmarine assigned to them except for the Tenth.

    There are ten Librarians and ten Techmarines in a Chapter. One for each company and one stationed in the Chapter HQ. The ones in the HQ are the Chief Librarian and the Master of the Forge respectively.

    Did not know that. Thanks for the info! By the way, where did you get that info from? Not the SM Codex, right? (Making sure I didn't miss something in it)

    I got some of it from the Insignium Astartes... I dunno... I've just been a fluff-geek for so long I just kinda know these things...
