    As I'm planing my army, I notice that it says
    " Retinues, squads and packs that bear the mark of one of these deities and contain at the start of the battle the same number of models as that deity's sacred number (or an exact multiple of it) are said to be favoured by the gods."

    I'm aiming for an 100% favoured army, does that mean that isn't possible?

    If not, if I have ONE squad that defies the rule, would it be legal that way? Since whatever you multiple 1 with, it'll end up right :/

    I think this is what your asking: No, not all sqauds have to follow their mark`s favoured number. It can apply to one of them or all of them. It is just an optional boost to help out Chaos cult armies.

    No, what I'm asking is if I CAN have the whole army to be flavoured my by beloved god (well, whatever units that can anyway)

    since it says in the rules of flavoured that you'd have to have the double number of models (or an excact multiple of it).

    I believe you can only have favored units if you are playing a legion of one of the gods; i.e Death Guard or World Eaters. If you are playing an army like that, units that are the favored number or a multiple of it is considered favored. Other than that, you cannot have favored units. For instance, a Black Legion army is not going to have a favored unit of berzerkers next to a favored unit of thousand sons.

    Mmmmm... a whole army Flavored by God..... *droools..*

    But seriously Soulwound is right. The only way that this can be done is if you have a legion loyal to only one specific god (since every god has a different favored number).

    Technically, the majority of your army can be flavored. For instance, you can have flavored units of berzerkers as troops and a flavored unit of khorne bikers. And if you&#39;re really crazy, you can give one of your flavored aspiring champion the Flavor of Khorne (a.k.a Feel No Pain). However, you obviously cannot have a flavored unit of bloodletters. So no, your entire army cannot be flavored.

    mmmmm......flavor of khorne.

    of cours you can have favored unit of bloodletters, if u make that unit 8 they will get +1 to summoning role and for the rest of the army, you can have favored units exept Hq

    the only armies that benefit from favoured units are the cult legions ie Thousand sons, World eaters. for every one else having a &#39;favoured&#39; unit is purely fluff based and just may give you some extra luck with them.

    Ah&#33;
    I misunderstood the rule, thanks for helping&#33;

    I thought that the number of squads you had had to be the exact number of squads that are not favoured.
    For example
    2 squads of [9 Chaos Space Marines]
    and with that you are allowed to have 4 squads of [6 Chaos Space Marines], having them favoured

    did sound like a weird rule :/
