I have been looking through the IG codex pretty intently the last few weeks as I am busy working on the concept for my slightly renegade division. All lots of fun of course but I have run into a problem.
Which set of stats are correct for the JO. The ones in the army list or those given on the summary sheet. Obviously I would prefer those on the summary sheet.
This is not addressed in the FAQ that I have been able to find.
I thought this would also be a good opportunity to discuss the oddities that can be found in the IG code too, but that is a secondary issue really.
huh, you know i've been playing IG for almost 2 years and I've never noticed that! haha I noticed the priest and hellhound before but I missed the JO. I'd say go with the one in the unit entry. I've always used him that way with the stat line of a vet sgt.
Yeah, the Army list is always right.
They spend time on it, but the summary is just quickly thrown together.
I too pondered a similar once upon a time...
Thread on same question (Two Quick Codex Questions)
To answer you simply, the army entry is right, his WS & BS are 3.
You know I am used to players scraping every possible bit of effectiveness and edge out of their codex and yet here the consensus has been to go with the worse of the two profiles. For some reason this makes me feel proud of my fellow Guard Leaders...
Ah well, back to the drawing board.
Well yeah, and if you expect an officer to win the game for you, then get the hell out of the kitchen.
It's not that they're crappy per se, it's just that your standard of comparison is a 9 foot tall genetic superhuman that spits acid, with blood that clots into protective gauze, can breath and eat almost anything, and has more vital organs than a Russian kidney exchange.
