    Special Weapons

    First time poster, and new IG Warhammer player.

    Anyway, I had a question about special weapons in command squads. I frequently see people putting them in their HQ squads and such, and I've noticed that it doesn't actually say anything about it in the codex. Am I missing some addendum somewhere or am I misreading these lists? Also, would the points for the weapons be the same as it would be in a normal infantry squad?

    Any clarification would be appreciated.

    It should be in the Options section of the Command Squad entry, after it mentions the heavy weapons.

    Hmm, definitely not. Maybe my codex is just some weird misprinted version or something.

    Is in the next page (pg 39), the confusion is because GW for for some unknow reason placed the Fire Support Squads section in the midle of the Command Squad Section. Just bettwen the Heavy Weapons Options and the Special Weapons option. Just read carefully all the Codex at least once for avoid missing something important.

    I'll quote the codex for you on page 39:

    "Any Guardsman not acting as heavy weapon crew may be armed with one special weapon from the following list:"

    This is contrary to just "One guardsman not acting as a heavy weapon crew[...]".
