    Techpriest Rules

    I know this seems like a silly question, but i was curious. I'm about 99% sure about this but I've been like that before and I've been wrong. Can tech priests join squads as independent characters?

    I've guessed that since it doesn't say they are independent characters, then they aren't, so they can't, but i also thought it strange that a techpriest isn't, since it is just a single model. Is there any errata, or is it just they are their own unit, making them dangerously exposed to fire?

    Thanks for any help :-)

    If a model doesn't have the 'independent character' rule...it's not an independent character.

    Techpriests have the option of servitors, IIRC.


    Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.

    Basically, what Rork said with a little detail:
    Techpriests do not have the Independant Character rule, so it doesn't matter whether they can come alone or not.
    ONLY units with the Indepentand Character RULE listed somewhere under their entry are independant characters.

    Are Techpriests, different than Techmarines?

    Techmarines, have the IC rule.

    Is there a special codex, that is being referred to here? Dark Angels?

    Yes.
    (They are the normal unenhanced human version - the Guard version.)

    In case of Sammael, yes.
    Isn't he in his speeder? That would explain why he doesn't have to join any squads...

    He's either in his one-of-a-kind landspeeder, way too awesome to meddle with lesser stuff, or in his one-of-a-kind-for-the-imperium-at-least-coz-eldar-and-the-like-have-tons jetbike.
