If an independent character in Terminator Armor joins a unit and they assault, can the unit still make a Sweeping Advance? According to BGB, IC behaves like a separate unit in assault, so he wouldn't slow them down. Am I right or not?
'tis a pity. But I still can make my IC leave the unit in the movement phase and assault with two units (unit, IC), right?
But in that case you would have to take two Morale checks if you lost, and the unit would not be able to use the IC's Leadership for theirs.

Care to back that up caluin? IC's fight seperately, and each group in CC rolls if they fail, Just as each group rolls for sweeping advance if they have btb with only the squad falling back. So the IC can't sweeping advance, but the squad can.Originally Posted by Caluin
Not trying to be arguementative but the rules say they fight seperately. And no where does it say they would lose sweeping advance if an an ic has it. Fearless is another issue (if IC is fearless and squad isn't, he loses it yup, but the other way.)
Do we really need to bring up that topic again?
Why do the survivors remain anonymous -- as if cursed -- while the dead are revered? Why do we cling to what we lose while we ignore what we still hold?
Name none of the fallen, for they stood in our place, and stand there still in each moment of our lives.

No, we don't. I've already argued over this point once with Tarzen, and I won't do it again.Originally Posted by Ostsol
I'm willing to admit that Tarzen may be correct in his statements. However, it's just as likely everyone who disagrees with him is correct instead. The answer I gave is the most widely accepted answer to an ambigious situation, and is the most likely answer that will be accepted in a tournament setting.
You're free to make up your own mind about it. Opinions were asked about a certain rule, I gave mine. That's all I will say on the subject.
Agreed=) about the last part and first! I question the middle paragraph but that's neither here nor there as we agreed to disagree on this point.Originally Posted by Caluin
As Anacron pointed out, if you keep them seperate you lose the high leadership if they lose (but who intends to lose, right?)and with two units, if you maintain btb with both (ic and unit) then you get to chances to catch in sweeping advance (except for the thread example, where the IC is in termy armour). But I could see how one might argue that the unit "can only move as fast as its slowest member" thus people may claim that the whole unit can't catch them (even though there is no such stimpulation in the rules for sweeping advance that I can find).
They fight separately but sweep together.Originally Posted by tarzen
sorry caluin...it's something I gotta do. Won't argue it with you=)Originally Posted by are
According to the rule book, this is not the case. It may very well be how everyone plays it, but the rule book says that they fight seperately, thus we check the rules for multiple units in combat and see that each one rolls seperately. For more about this check the othr thread (will post a link when I can)
