Do all squads need sergeants to lead them? (I'm being SM if that helps)
If some do and some don't please inform. I'm somewhat confused w/my codex.
All squads except command squads must be led by sergeant. The sergeant has the same stats as a normal marine and may exchange his bolter for bp+ccw. He may not carry a heavy or special weapon.
The sergeant may further be given terminator honours and this changes his statline. In addition, he will be able (but not required) to buy stuff from the armoury.
Where would I get more sergeants? I've got one whole SM squad w/sarg, but, I have another w/no sergeant.
ok you can buy blisters of meta sgts,
but as was pointed out above, your sergent can be equiped with all sorts of stuf, the model should reflect what you have chosen for him, his default state is exactly the same as the marines in the squad and so you can use a marine mini for a sgt
Everything you have been told is a lie!
Could I just use a space marine veteran as a sergeant? Because I happen to have one around here.
Wait, I was thinking, is it possible just to convert one of my guys and give him a power fist and a bolt pistol and he be considered a sergeant?

You can simply claim one of the normal Space Marine models to be a sergent. He doesn't have to have equipment at all diffrent that any of the others.
He can, however, and if you'd like to buy something to represent that you may.
Also, I don't mean to disagree with anyone, but where does it say that a squad needs to be lead by a sergent? I havn't read the new codex, so maybe something changed. On top of that, I play Black Templar now, and they don't even have sergents...

Well, in my Codex, it says a squad of space marine is between something like 4-9 space marines and a sergeant. Then I looked at some pics of some battles and when some squads were deployed, there were some squads that were completely seperate, 5 guys with bolters. I thought, heh wtf. So I came here to ask b/c I completely went off that I didn't need a sergeant for a squad when I bought my combat squad.
