Obviously wolf guard can break off and lead their own units, however my question is, after breaking up has occured, do wolf guard units still need to adhere to the 3 man minimum listed in their entry.
The reason I ask is that for one of my lists, I take a 5 man unit so that I can have a cyclone missile launcher terminator attach to a squad, but I attach 4 of the 5 total. Thus I would have one lonely wolf guard who can't attach to a unit (there are no extra units). Is this legal?
My guess is that it would be, since you buy the unit first and then split off as the game starts, making all sorts of random things possible, including wolf guards of one or two men. However, I just wanted to double check here in case it ever came up during a game.
Thanks in advance.

Thats a good question. My gut reaction would be that after all the splitting off, the pack still needs to be atleast 3 strong. But, are pack members that split off still considered part of the WG pack for the composition requirement? If not, the WG pack needs to be atleast 3 strong. But if so, you could have a lone WG model running around. (not that you'd really want to) I think this issue may need to be FAQ'd, because it is unclear.
The codex does not state that a remainder unit must be at least 3-strong. The legal requirement only comes in when you are selecting your WG unit. You must have the minimum number in that squad. After that, you allocate the individual models as and where you wish. Should you have any remaining from your original unit then they may go ahead and operate in a reduced squad.
The chances are that you would join an IC to the remaining WGs anyway.
